Quick Overview

At the time of its first printing in 1955, the book offered a detailed and comprehensive study of the Cup's style and compared its features with similarly rare and unique medieval metal objects. Rice also provided an iconographical explanation for some of the images and enhanced the quality of the publication through excellent drawings of some of the fascinating motifs of the Wade Cup. In the 1957, the late Richard Ettinghausen published what was originally intended as a review of Rice's monograph in the form of a lengthy article (Ars Orientalis, II, 1957, pp. 327-66). Of great importance are Ettinghausen's attribution of the Cup's provenance to Khorasan of the early 13th century rather than Azarbaijan of the late thirteenth century.
