God is With Us Goblet. The goblet is made of silver and gold plated bronze and has a classic shape with a cylindrical, slightly expanding to the top capacity, an elongated “leg” and a round, convex base stand. The three sides are decorated with two relief reproductions from the famous series of medals with classical allegorical scenes on themes of the war of 1812 by Fyodor Petrovich Tolstoy (1783-1873), as well as a medallion with the image of the imperial eagle and the inscription - “God is with us”. The first medallion is a reproduction of the medal - "Rodomysl of the ninth to tenth centuries", depicting a portrait of Emperor Alexander I in a military ancient Slavic costume in the form of the Slavic god of war Rodomysl. The second medal is titled: Alexander's first step outside of Russia in 1813. Emperor Alexander is depicted in an ancient Slavic metal helmet and a lion skin around his shoulders and holding a sword and shield. The shield bears an image of the All-Seeing Eye. The Emperor and horse rush past a statue of Jupiter Terminus as the horse tramples a snake (a symbol of transformation) with its back foot. The female figures represent Truth, Wisdom and Glory who fly along and help to guide the horse and rider by its bridle. The base is decorated with five small medallions depicting profiles of several Russian rulers - Catherine II, Paul I, Alexander I, Alexander II, and Nicholas I.
