Small Glass Pocket Tumbler with White Trailing

 This tumbler is a golden honey color with thin white trailing. This piece is unusual because of its color, type of trailing and its small size.  A glass pocket tumbler was carried by a traveler in a pouch or pocket and used for drinking.  A large number of pocket tumblers were made in Spain from the early-17th though the late-18th century.  The origin of the piece could be Spain, or Germany.  No parallels could be found.

H: 7.3 cm

18th Century
