Windmill cup, anonymous, 1642

Windmill cup, anonymous, 1642

silver (metal), h 20.5cm × w 7.5cm × d 10.5cm. More details

Although windmill cups were intended in first place for the amusement of dinner guests, the embellishment of this one has a pious note. Depicted on the mill are the first two of the ‘Seven Works of Mercy’, namely feeding the hungry, and giving water to the thirsty. Party or no party, Christian charity had to be upheld.
