A Final Coat of Arms from Stuttgart
For our final bit of heraldry seen in Stuttgart, Germany, we have this beautifully etched glass armorial goblet with lid, seen on display in the Old Castle there.
The arms are, of course, the well-known arms of Sachsen (Saxony), blazoned in German as In neunmal von Schwarz und Gold geteilten Feld einen schrägrechten grünen Rautenkranz and in English as Barry sable and or a crancelin [a bend engrailed on the upper edge the points trefly, or crown of rue] vert.
