Originally designed for the marriage of the Duke of Ferrara, the piece is one of the most famous and frequently reproduced works of Renaissance glass in existence. The images on the bowl include wedding portraits of the bride and groom. A group of women on horseback ride toward a fountain in which, on the other side of the goblet, they are shown bathing nude. Reproductions of this iconic Renaissance work represent the revitalization during the late 19th century of Murano’s centuries-long fame as a glassmaking center. One of the earliest figures in this effort was Antonio Salviati, whose adaptation of traditional skills to modern manufacturing processes promoted ornate and highly decorative glass as an accessible art form rather than one limited to the very wealthy. Many of the existing copies are attributed to his manufactory.
