• ‘Hedwig-beakers’ – some characteristics:
– 13 ‘Hedwig-beakers’ are published:
- 9 with heraldic figures (eagle, lion, griffin),
- 3 with ornamental decoration.

• Arguments in favour of the Sicilian production of ‘Hedwig-beakers’:
– stylistic arguments,
– chronological, technological and historical considerations,
– additional considerations:
- shield triangles above the lions represent the triangular island of Sicily,
- star and crescent motif of the Breslau [Wrocław] beaker is similar to the crescent with three stars motif on a coin of William II of Sicily.

• Three possibilities of how the ‘Hedwig beakers’ reached central Europe:
- as a gift from William II to the Emperor Barbarossa,
- as a part of Constance’s dowry (1185),
- as a part of Henry’s booty (1194).
