Notes:

From barrow of Gorm and Thyra, Jutland.
Worsaae, “Industrial Arts of Denmark.”

Found in the huge double barrow in which the heathen king Gorm the Old, founder of the Danish monarchy (c. 900-936), and his Christian wife Thyra, were buried side by side at Jelling at Jutland. [...] The cup is of silver, gilt inside, and ornamented with an old half mythological pattern of twisted snakes and fantastic animals.

This was next to the engraving of the Figure of Christ with Heathen Symbols in the book.
