German Wine Glass with Engraved Hare
This beautiful wine glass is engraved with a hare on its conical bowl sitting on a molded pedestal stem and folded foot. The glass was made in Germany around 1740.
H: 14.5 cm
The restored ovoid bowl on this early Roemer is attached to an open stem decorated with pulled prunts. Unlike later Roemers there is no spiral foot only a pinched “toed” base ring. This form is close to the Berkemeyer12E, which has a flaring bowl. The bowl’s shape is the main difference in these two types. Also see early Roemer 56E.
H: 9 cm
