Abstract

The Hope Goblet entered the collections of the British Museum in 1894. It was at one time considered to be an example of the so-called Syro-Frankish enameled vessels. More recently it has been considered a forgery, probably made in the last quarter of the 19th century, shortly before it was purchased. Technical analysis suggests that many aspects of the vessel are consistent with manufacture before that time. While it may not be a medieval artifact, it is unlikely that it was made to deceive.
