Among the many goals of their society – which they named Isaiah Religious Society – was to create religious objects fitting to contemporary formal design. As a goldsmith, Margit Tevan made Seder plates and Mezuzah boxes in the constructivist style of the era. in 1937 she received diplome d’honneur on the international world exhibit’s show of religious art, and on the Triennale in Milan she received silver prize. She prepared this goblet, decorated with Biblical scenes, as a wedding present for Ernő Naményi the same year.
