A lapis lazuli goblet decorated with ovolos that are convex on the upper art and concave on the base. The stem linking the two pieces consists of a white enameled boy, two winged dragons with open mouths and horns on both their snouts and their heads, fruit and four dolphins.

The brief disappearance of this piece when the Museum was robbed in 1918 led to the loss of part of the base and two dragons formerly on the edges of the goblet.

This work was part of the inheritance received by King Felipe V (1683-1746) upon the death of his father, the Grand Dauphin, in 1712.
