The Welcoming Goblet is one of the oldest known works of Marcin Lekszycki, a goldsmith from Kraków, operating from 1763 to 1798. In 1763, Lekszycki was accepted into the guild of goldsmiths in Kraków, and from 1765, he was an independent master. In the following years, he held important functions in the guild, including the junior guild master and primate of the Guild of Goldsmiths. He worked in Kraków for local clients and nearby churches. There are about forty works ‘signed’ by Lekszycki, including monstrances, chalices, censers, and eternal lamps. Those relics are an example of goldsmith projects with the use of rococo ornamentation.
The works of Lekszycki's final phase represent a simplicity of form characteristic for this period of classicism.
