Lustreware goblet, c.1860

Molded copper lustre goblet with classical relief design of figures in a chariot, measures 5″ high and dates from the mid-1800’s. Due to the proliferation of lustreware in England, coupled with the fragile nature of the clay, it is not uncommon to see inventive repairs on pieces such as this.
