Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich gives a detailed account of the chalice used in the Last Supper in her book, The Dolorous Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. In it she describes the chalice as being of several interconnected parts (if I recall correctly) with two gilded handles, various precious materials and is supposed to have originally belonged to Noah.

More than likely it was not the cliche dusty earthenware goblet we are so used to seeing. 

as i said in an earlier post, the Douay-Rheims says Jesus used a chalice.

that's more authoritative than a visionary's account. even if she gave a detailed description of the chalice in her vision.  no disrespect to her, but the Gospels in the D-R saying "chalice" should settle the matter, and apparently did for those who made changes to the Missal.

There's also a tradition that says the chalice used at the Last Supper was the golden gift given to Jesus by the Magi.
