'Loving cup' là chén rượu uống chung được dùng trong lễ cưới hay bữa tiệc, nó thường có 3 tay cầm, làm bằng kim loại và thường được trao như giải thưởng cho người thắng cuộc trong một cuộc thi đấu (a shared drinking container traditionally used at weddings and banquets. It usually has three handles and is often made of metal and are commonly given as trophies to winners of games or other competitions. They can be found all over Europe, examples include the Celtic quaich and the French coupe de mariage); ngoài ra còn có nghĩa là chén rượu thâm tình.
