Special products of the medieval upper class
Even as early as the Middle Ages, the everyday objects used indicated which stratum of the population was involved. Whether textiles, jewellery or everyday aids: the wealthier the individual persons were, the more valuable products were used. The tumbler cup with metal holder is therefore a good example of the fact that the richer class of the Middle Ages stood out clearly from the lower and middle classes. They used drinking vessels made of pure glass, while the others drank from metal vessels in many places.
