R 007 - Double cup.

Derived from the German Renaissance goldsmithing. H = 57 cm. Iron red glazed hand-modelled stoneware. The hanap, or drinking cup, is subject to great developments in Germany at the turn of the 16th century, under the form of the Pokal, which combines late gothic decorative details and the new elements come from Italy.  The cup is then always lidded and its body swells into gadroons and other rounded humps resembling a fir cone or a pineapple. When the lid is a second cup put upside down, the whole is said to be a double cup or double hanap.
