Embossed silver goblet with an inset Korn Jude medal

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.215

Embossed silver goblet, possibly used as a kiddush cup, with an older Korn Jude medal embedded in the side. A kiddush cup is a ceremonial vessel to hold wine for the blessing said at Shabbat and Jewish holiday meals. The Korn Jude medal was issued to propagate an antisemitic myth about a 17th century famine in Germany. The Jews were accused of hoarding the grain and selling it at inflated prices. The cup is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
