Cup with cover

Designer Reinhold Vasters German
Finial figure after a composition by Abraham Lotter the Elder

Not on view

The design for the entire covered cup, crystal included, is by Reinhold Vasters. The drawings for it exist at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The finial figure, Caritas, has been derived from a similar composition on the Hausaltar of Albrecht V at the Schatzkammer in Munich, made by Abraham Lotter the Elder, 1573–74.
