If you enjoy seeing how very obscenely rich people lived 400 years ago or longer, go hang out at The Met for a few hours and have your mind blown. This fancy cup, made from a gilt-plated-silver shell of a Nautilus is a thing that you can see at this gargantuan museum, and it emphasizes the point that some rich people like to have really fancy things to look at and, maybe, use. At the very top of the cup you can see a tiny figure of Poseidon (King of the Ocean) holding a trident. How badass.

The Nautilus Cup comes from the Dutch capital city of Utrecht, circa 1602, and was gifted to the museum in 1917 by the estate of J. Pierpont Morgan, who is most famous today for having a global investment bank named after him.
