A large engraved ceremonial goblet, made for the Dutch market, late 18th century, one side finely decorated with an elaborate East India Company style armorial, to the reverse a banner inscribed 'Het Welvaaren Van Wyk 49', raised on a double knopped faceted hexagonal stem and domed faceted foot, height 21.8cm. Note: in the 18th century, Amsterdam was divided into a number of districts, each with its own 'Schutterij', similar to a police force. This glass was probably used by the men of district 49.
