Web Description: 
This type of goblet was apparently produced in great quantities during the 16th century. Such vessels have been tentatively attributed to Venice, France, Austria, the Southern Netherlands, and other centers that produced glass in Venetian style. Archeological finds from a house near Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague may indicate a Bohemian provenance for these objects. However, since its closest parallels in proportion, glass quality, and mold pattern are two vessels that originated in Tyrol, the Austrian provenance seems most likely.
