Mycenean Gold Cup
Gilded like the sun
Vessel that holds stories and soul
Drink from me your woes
A favorite piece, and always a conversation starter, this ornate cup boasts a multitude of uses including serving bright red, grape tomatoes, candy or nuts, or use it to sip your suma (Parian grappa). It’s also beautiful as a simple objet d’art. It’s a favorite of our founder who plucked hers off a dusty shelf in a textile shop in Crete. While hers is a copy (as is the one offered here), the original cup dates back to the late Bronze Age, around 1500 BC.
Museum reproduction certification included, each vessel is handcrafted from certified molds in Athens, Greece and finished in 24-karat gold plate.
