A beautiful piece of Dutch silver after antique example. In the Netherlands, the so-called “stortebeker” was used in the 16th and 17th centuries as a wedding gift and at weddings. This drinking utensil was a double cup, made of silver, with a large cup and a smaller cup. The large cup often had the shape of a woman in a wide dress. As a couple, the intention was to drink from both cups without spilling. The groom drank from the large part, found under the skirt of the woman. The woman from the small tilting chalice.
