$250.00

This is a fine goblet that appears to be made from zinc. It stands 5 1/2″ tall. It measures 3″ in diameter at the rim, and 2 3/4″ in diameter at the base. It sports three decorative panels. The first shows Kaiser Wilhelm II in naval uniform. The second shows his racing sloop, the S. M. Y. Iduna. The third panel shows König Carl I. von Rumänien’s crowned cypher. (König Carl I. was also the Regimental Chef of Dragoner-Regiment Nr 9). The cup is finely made. It sports a manufacturer’s hallmark on the bottom. Material from any of the Kaiser’s yachts is difficult-to-find. The S.M.Y. Iduna is one of the Kaiser’s lesser-known vessels that was used for yachting competitions of the Kaiserlicher Yacht Club.
