The German Royal Armorial goblet with a nick to the inside rim.
The surface of the goblet with the arms of Barons Frohberg is deteriorating inside and out which gives a rough, textured feeling. It also has restored breaks to the base.
The goblet with the screw fixture to the stem has a chip to the screw thread at the tip.
A nick to the gilded rim of each of the Bohemain goblets.
