This cup is in the vein of the work of the Italian sculptor Benedetto Boschetti (1820-1860). The work of the deep flutes of the cup blooming on the edges, the rosebud center and the shaft also worked in flutes is typical of the Roman work in the entourage of Boschetti in the first half of the nineteenth century.
