A German Wedding Tradition

A noble mistress fell in love with a young and ambitious goldsmith. Her father did not approve of the pair, She had refused many rich suitors who asked for her hand in marriage. Her father became so enraged that he had the young goldsmith thrown into the darkest dungeon. To her father's dismay, his daughter grew paler and paler as a result of the separation from her true love. He told his daughter, "If your goldsmith can make a chalice from which two people can drink at the same time without spilling one single drop, I will free him and you shall become his bride”. Inspired by love the goldsmith created his masterpiece. He sculpted a girl with a smile as beautiful as his own true love's. Her skirt was hollowed to serve as a cup. Her raised arms held a bucket that swivels so that it could be filled and then swung towards a second drink
