~Ceremonial Cup.
Johann Melchior Dinglinger (German, 1664-1731) (Artist)
Period: ca. 1697-1722 (Late Baroque)
Medium: agate, gold, silver and silver-gilt, enamel, diamonds, semiprecious stones
(Gold, Silver & Jewelry)
Geography: Dresden, Germany (Place of Origin)

This magnificent late Baroque ceremonial cup was made for Augustus the Strong (1670-1733), elector of Saxony and king of Poland. One of a pair, it was first exhibited in 1722 in the Green Vaults of Dresden, the royal treasury that opened as a public museum the following year. A prancing Polish horse is mounted on an agate bowl. Protruding from his elaborately enameled saddle cover are the handles of the ceremonial sword of Poland and of the sword of Investiture of the Order of the White Eagle. A rider and horse enameled on an oval plaque on the back of the cup represent Lithuania, then united with Poland. Other insignia include the crown of Poland placed on a crimson cushion, the Polish white eagle, and the monarch’s monogram. Dogs and salamanders are among the naturalistic elements incorporated into the exuberant scroll-work of the mount. Johann Melchior Dinglinger was appointed jeweler to the court in 1698. Working together with his brothers Georg Friedrich, an enameler, and Georg Christoph, a jeweler, he drew upon Saxony’s rich mineral resources to keep alive the Renaissance goldsmith’s tradition in which semiprecious stones and enamels were used in conjunction with metal. His international reputation was such that Peter the Great of Russia stayed as his houseguest in 1712.

17th Avenue, Calgary's rather ramshackle playground

No matter where you live in Calgary, you know the strip stretching from the Stampede grounds to 14 Street.

17th Avenue is like the social heart of our city, our playground, the city’s backyard.

It’s the place to go drinkin’, grab a slice of pizza at 3 a.m., sit and watch the game in your jersey and brag about how you could've played “pro." 

You can also pick up some skinny jeans, lounge in the park, learn some new profanity, or just hang and have a cup of coffee with the cool kids.

17th Avenue has been "17th Avenue” pretty much forever.

For at least a hundred years there’s been some kind of magic which has drawn people to this rather ramshackle asphalt strip.

Sure, it’s got problems.

When the city asked people what they thought of it, people said it was ugly, a bit dodgy, dangerous for cyclists and that if you were walking, well, look out for cars. Still, it’s one of the places to be in Calgary, most nights.

The City of Calgary figures there are about 24 “main streets” in Calgary.

As part of our Calgary at a Crossroads project, Jenny Howe has saddled up and hit the trails to check out our city’s main streets.
