Es gehe den Magestrat der stadt Hamburg wohl auch dießen so hier auß auß trincken solln.

The magistrate of the city of Hamburg would probably drink from this too.

This leviathan of a goblet is clearly a portrays some civic pride. The good burghers of Hamburg probably commissioned this to demonstrate their affluence. The city coat of arms, the inscription and the the sheer size . When filled with three bottles of wine one would certainly be demonstrating ones wealth and some strength too !
