gilding, h 35.0cm More details

The foot of a wine glass could be secured in the four clamps (shaped like sea creatures) at the top of this holder. Together, the glass and its holder make an impressive drinking vessel, which was probably brought out only on ceremonial occasions. The two glass holders belong to a set of five that was commissioned in 1606 by the treasurers of the Amsterdam City Council.
