Guest Book

This antique trade guild goblet with lid (or humpen) is dated 1658 and likely comes from the German state of Hesse. It features extensive enamel painted decoration including the symbols for five distinctive guilds. It appears to read " Kurfurstenhumpen Deckelhumpen REICHSADLERHUMPEN " with the names Hanß Bruchman Michel Biltcher and Hanß (F)ondman ". Writing on the rear has not been translated. It measures 17" tall and 6.75" across, and the beaker alone without top measure 13" tall. Condition of the enamel decoration is very good, with only modest losses. There is a chip to the inside of the lid, and no visible cracks or repairs to the beaker. This item resides with our client on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York and may be seen by appointment. It is one of two Hessen humpen which we currently have for sale.
