The Kiddush goblet which is discussed in the article was among the several old masterpieces stolen from the so-called Old Synagogue in Cracow in 1892. Although the goblet was soon recovered, it was too badly damaged to serve ritual purposes, as Kiddush goblets, used during the Sabbath and other festivals, had to be flawless. Therefore, before 1902, the goblet was passed to the National Museum, and it was reassembled there. Although this reconstruction has slightly changed its original shape, known from old drawings, it is still the pride of the Museum’s collection of Judaica. In the literature the goblet is dated to the 16th or 17th c. but a closer analysis of its ornaments suggests that the dating should be changed to the mid 18th c.
