A NUREMBERG GILT COPPER MOUNTED COCONUT CUP c1580

A NUREMBERG GILT COPPER MOUNTED COCONUT CUP c1580

Coconut was prized not only because of its exoticism, but also for its purported medical properties. Coconut milk alleviated, among other things, tapeworm, fever, kidney and bladder afflictions and served as an aphrodisiac as well. The nut’s shell was rumoured to possess the ability to reveal poisons. This particular attribute of the fruit of the coconut palm predetermined its use as the cup element in drinking vessels. The design of this standing cup, with lion & lambrequin straps, is typical of southern Germany in the second half of the sixteenth century.
