Celestial globe cup, anonymous, c. 1650

silver (metal), h 42.0cm × w 17.6cm × d 17.6cm More details

The figure of Hercules was modelled by the German artist Christophe Jamnitzer, a well-known sculptor in silver. A few decades later the figure was incorporated on another precious object, whose richly decorated base and beaker followed his ideas. Since the beaker bears Venetian city hallmarks, this version was probably made there.
