Hunting and Shooting in Germany
Jubilee Shooting Pokal (Item HUNT 1-4)
|DESCRIPTION: This wonderful goblet was the prize for a special shooting tournament held in Frankfurt am Main in 1912 to celebrate the 17th-century German shooting contest held in the ancient city. This was, as the words indicate, the Golden Jubilee; the first was held in 1862. The art-nouveau design is typical of Frankfurter art. This goblet is 9 ½ inches high with a bowl diameter of 4 ½ inches. The goblet is of 800 silver and so marked with the crown and half moon, the maker's (Posen) mark. This mark is also evident on the bottom. In the panels that grace the stem are the eagles of the Kaiserreich and the Frankish Adler (eagle). Targets and oak leaves are seen in the other panels. At the top are two views of the city of Frankfurt and the jubilee years. Very nice.
