This pewter cup is embellished with an engraving of an Emperor wielding a sword in his right hand, while in his left hand he holds a Globus Cruciger (a symbol consisting of an orb surmounted by a cross), mostly used in medieval times by emperors and kings on coins, iconography and royal regalia. This represents Royal or Imperial power as being a Christian power. This pewter cup belongs to a collection consisting of six pieces, each bearing engraved representations of noble medieval characters inspired by frescoes of Fénis Castle in the Aosta Valley. This pewter cup is also available without any engraving (art. 532). The alloy we use for casting each object is tin, bonded with antimony and copper. The Italian pewter we use meets all EU and US requirements for food safety.
