Authentic German Beer Steins, Glass & Ceramic Beer Mugs, Beer Boots and German Gifts. A family tradition since 1954.
This German Bridal Cup also known as a Wedding Cup has a swiveling cup and hollow dress which allow both the bride and groom to drink simultaneously. The legend of the "Nuremberg Bridal Cup" as told by the manufacturer. A long time ago a goldsmith in the city of Nuremberg wanted to wed Kunigunde, a young lady of noble birth. Her father, however, did not like the idea and resorted to a ruse to prevent his daughter from marrying the penniless artisan. He would only allow the wedding to take place on condition that the goldsmith succeeded in making a vessel from which two persons could drink together without spilling a drop of its contents. The goldsmith succeeded, and the news of the happy ending spread quickly all over Bavaria, where the Bridal Beaker has been in use ever since.

UNIQUE ENGAGEMENT GIFT
Posted by PMack on Oct 29th 2011
We received one of these 10 years ago from friends who had visited Germany. We thought it was a unique gift and was thrilled to find that Northcote Imports sold them. We have given them as engagement gifts to at least 10 couples through the years. We have never been disappointed in the quality of the product or with our dealings with Northcote Imports. Both are first rate!
