Small glasses and carafes like these were placed on the tables of the aristocracy. Their simple shape also meant that they could be stored in a luggage compartment during a journey. They are decorated with heraldic symbols: coats of arms surrounded with badges of office indicating the status of Marshal at the Court of the Republic of Poland. This coloured, polished and gilded glassware, displayed at the Palace of Wilanów, comes from Huta Kryształowa, a big glassworks which produced chandeliers and crystal tableware in the 18th century.
