IMPERIAL WINE CUPS:Gold Cup of Eternal Stability
Dated c.1740, these spectacular vessels, decorated with pearls, gemstones and kingfisher feathers, were made for the Qianlong Emperor. As part of the New Year celebrations at the Forbidden City in Beijing, the Emperor used the Gold Cup of Eternal Stability to drink tusu wine, a special herbal drink. The aim of this ceremony was to ensure the territorial integrity of the country.
Only four cups are recorded: the other two are in the palace museums in Beijing and Taipei. Find out more: https://bit.ly/3diU3M7
