Silver Mug, Augsburg 17th century

A small, partially gilded silver mug, made in Augsburg (Bavaria) between 1687 and 1691 by master goldsmith Paul Solanier. Placed on a circular base, its surface presents a repoussé decor of round or ovoid cupules on amati golden background. The doucine-shaped lid has the same decor with a small gilded and gilded handle at the top. A thumb rest with two volutes marks the start of the handle in curves and counter-curves.

The small size of this mug is due to its function of beer pint presented to the young mother after childbirth, for, according to tradition, to raise the milk. Hence the name of the mother-child.

Time Period: 1687 - 1691

State of conservation: good, outer gilding slightly blurred
