Musée d'Art Décoratif Hongrois 

Budapest, Hungary

This Tankard was made as a special commission by currently unknown metal workers in Budapest. It was made for the Hungarian 1896 Millennium

 exhibition and specifically the official opening of the Museum of Decorative Arts. It celebrated the foundation by the Magyar tribes of the 
Hungarian Grand Principality in 896. 
The leaders of the seven Hungarian tribes proclaimed Árpádtobe, Grand Prince of the Magyars, 

making him the founder of the dynasty named after him, which would rule over the kingdom of Hungary until 1301. He is generally

 thought of as the forefather of the Hungarian people and is often affectionately known as "our father Árpád” (Árpádapánk).
