A goblet, also known as a chalice[1] is a cup used to hold a liquid, usually a drink. Goblets are usually made out of crystal or various metals, such as gold and silver, and often sculpted by goblins. They are used to hold drinks at the Welcoming Feasts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


The Black family owned a set of fifteenth-century goblin-wrought silver goblets, embossed with their family crest, that were stored at 12 Grimmauld Place and used by the Order of the Phoenix during the summer of 1995.[3] In late 1996, Harry Potter discovered Mundungus Fletcher in Hogsmeade with some of these goblets, which he had stolen.[4]

Champagne was served in goblets during the Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour.[5]

When Remus Lupin and the residents of Shell Cottage toasted to the birth of Remus's son Teddy Lupin in spring of 1998, their hosts Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour served the wine in goblets.[6]
