Two-handled bowl

Péter W. Kecskeméti

Not on view

The engraved coat of arms in the center of this bowl is surrounded by an inscription that may refer to the membership of its owner to a religious or fraternal order. In Hungary, almost all members of a dynastic house used the same coat of arms. Therefore, individual heraldic crowns, conveying one’s personal rank and title, were rarely added.

Two-handled bowl, Péter W. Kecskeméti (ca. 1663–ca. 1680), Gilded silver, Hungarian, Kassa
