An elaborate large German wine goblet, the round funnel bowl cut and etched with two winged figures clasping hands over an orb. The inscription on the reverse of the glass reads, in Old German: "unser freundschaft sol bestehn bis wir mit der welt vergehn", which translates to "our friendship shall remain until we leave this world". The beautifully cut stem is of the teared inverted baluster type. Folded foot with rough snapped pontil.

The glass is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. The height is 8 3/4", the bowl diameter is 3 1/2", and the foot diameter is 3 5/8".
