I found this beaker here in Sydney a few weeks ago and am stumped.
It's pressed glass, 12 cm tall, 9cm across at the mouth and 7.5 cm at the foot. (4.7 x 3.5 x 3 ins)
Inside the dome of the foot is an impressed '8'.
The gilding seems quite good and there is black transfer overlay of the outline of zodiacal animals and dates.
Front and back there is "Steinbock Capricorn 22 Dec - 20 Jan". there are also twelve signs in a smaller version around the edge with dates and names in German and English.
Any help with its identity would be appreciated.
