Kiddush Cup
Ukraine
Mid-19th

Silver. Forged, engraved, gold-gilded

 

This rare silver cup is a relic. The only decoration it has is an inscription reading that the cup was made of silver coins, which had been collected by the wellknown Ukrainian leaders of the Khasid movement in the first half of the 19th century. It is the case, when an ordinary artwork without any ornamental and pictorial decorations bears an inscription, that alone gives every opportunity to appreciate its historic significance associated with the historically- recognized persons.
