Belated Artifact Monday: The Boleyn Cup

 This cup once belonged to Queen Anne Boleyn. The church that currently holds the cup, St. John the Baptist in Cirencester, states that it was given by the Queen to Dr. Richard Masters, a physician, who cared for the Princess Elizabeth. He later, in 1561, gave the cup to the church. It is silver gilt adorned with Anne's Royal Falcon. It was once part of her large collection of gold and silver plate.

  1. Hola, también me llamo Elizabeth y soy aficionada a la era Tudor. Felicidades por tu pagina, es muy interesante todo lo que subes y me he quedado clavada leyendo varios artículos. Siempre he querido conocer gente con la que comparta gustos similares, como lo es el gusto por los Tudor.
