"Excellent for chilled pumpkin juice, but not ideal for hot tea."
-- Book of Spells (BoS)

Golden goblets are used on the tables in the Great Hall at Hogwarts (PS7)

  • Usually filled with pumpkin juice, more rarely, orange juice (PS7, CS5, PA5, GF12, GF15).
  • Snape may have used one of these to bring Lupin his smoking Wolfsbane Potion (PA8)
  • There were also goblets at Grimmauld Place made from "fifteenth-century goblin-wrought silver,
    embossed with the Black family crest" (OP5). These were later stolen by Mundungus Fletcher (HBP12, DH10).
