Gregorius Gunesch

Not on view

The tapering cylindrical body of this tankard is embossed with female and male masks and a very dense pattern of strap- and scrollwork and festoons. Only the gadrooned foot rim, undecorated frame of the lid, and plain finial offer a moment of classical restraint.

Tankard, Gregorius Gunesch (active ca. 1597), Gilded silver, Hungarian, Nagyszeben
