Welcome to English Shop and this listing for a large wooden cup or chalice. We are not quite sure with this it may have Asian or African history. It seems to be the same man carved into both sides of the cup. On one side he is asleep or dead. On the other he is awake. We would be interested to hear others thoughts on the piece.
