- Product Description
The bridal cup, also known as a wedding cup or maiden cup dates back centuries ago (1450) to the little town of Nuernberg in the Southern part of Germany and is a popular German wedding tradition. The swiveling cup and hollow dress were designed to allow both bride and groom to drink simultaneously to toast their wedding. Delicate relief work is present throughout the item focusing on a floral plant pattern around the skirt and bucket. An ideal wedding gift. This Pewter Nuernberg Bridal Cup has areas in which to engrave names and wedding date. Legend of the Nuernberg Bridal Cup Centuries ago, in old Nuernberg, the noble mistress Kunigunde fell in love with a goldsmith. Although Kunigunde's wealthy father did not approve of this pair, it was clear that she wanted only the goldsmith to be her husband, and she rejected all other suitors. Even imprisoning the goldsmith did not end Kunigunde's love for him. Instead, her father could only watch his daughter grow paler and paler as a result of the separation from her true love. The wealthy nobleman reluctantly made the following proposal: he would allow his daughter to marry the goldsmith if he could fashion a cup from which two people could drink at the same time without spilling any wine. Inspired by love and with skillful hands, the goldsmith created a masterpiece. He sculpted a girl with a smile as beautiful as his own true love's. Her skirt was hollowed to serve as a cup. Her raised arms held a bucket that swivels so that it could be filled and then tipped towards a second drinker. The challenge was met. The goldsmith and the nobleman's daughter joined hands in marriage and with the bridal cup set forth a romantic and memorable tradition as charming today as it was hundreds of years ago.
