Painted Goblets

I’d been thinking about making some painted ‘enamel’ goblets for the barony for some time.  I bought all the supplies, but haven’t been able to find the time until now.

There are many historical examples.  I particularly like this one, though the shape of this one is closer to my glasses.

And here’s the start of mine.

Almost Done

I need to tack down the last of the trim, finish the cap sleeves, and make new undersleeves and a new partlet, but I’m quite pleased with how it is coming along.
