The cup belonged to Princess Ljubica, and is the oldest item from a rich collection of foreign-made glass. It was made for Princess Ljubica Obrenović, and was probably given to the Princess on a special occasion. It is made of faceted crystal and richly decorated with enamel and gilding, with inscriptions in three gilded medallions. One shows the Serbia’s coat of arms with the inscription "Serbia" above it, the other represents an angel holding a wreath and the inscription "Her Ladyship Princess Ljubica Obrenovic", while the third shows a two-headed eagle and the text "The Empire established by Nemanja". The cup was preserved by the Veličković family from Belgrade.
