An important glass goblet of green color, with a convex base, a slightly bent edge and a funnel-shaped body. On the side there is still a glass wire to be seen, which was not a decoration but a production error of the glassblower at the time.
Merovingian. 5th-7th century A.D.
Condition: the goblet is in a beautiful condition with a slight iridiscence to the inside
Dimensions: height 11,6cm ; diameter 7,5cm
Found in the Lyon region; after in an old Lyon collection; subsequently published on two occasions by "La Reine Margot" in Paris in their catalog "Myths & Legends 40" (2007/2008) and in another catalog in 2008 (both catalogues are included). Since then in a private collection Parisian until now (acquired by us in June 2018).
an almost identical goblet can be found at the Musée de Normandie in Caen (see the image of the object)
