Description
English: The Royal Gold Cup or Saint Agnes Cup is a solid gold-covered cup lavishly decorated with enamel and pearls. It was made for the French royal family at the end of the 14th century, and later belonged to several English monarchs before spending nearly 300 years in Spain. It is generally agreed to be the outstanding surviving example of late medieval French plate.
