The Antwerp Owl Goblet (1548-1549). Silver and coconut. This is the oldest known Antwerp owl goblet. The head of the owl could be screwed off, so people could drink from its body. An old Dutch saying was engraved around the neck of the bird: ‘Als alle ander fogels sin thoe neste sois min flige beste.’ (‘When all the birds are [lying] in their nests, my flight is best’) - Decribing the owl as a bird who is active at night.
