Floral decoration was very popular on goldsmiths’ work in the later seventeenth century, culminating with the use of large, swirling blossoms and foliage, as seen on this beaker that is elevated on ball feet. Objects with this form belonged to a standard type and were produced in large quantities throughout Central and Eastern Europe.
