Ridged Beaker with a Distinct Foot
The common name for a drinking glass in this style is maigeline, which is mainly from Germany. Other examples in our collection 23E & 49E are closer to the true maigeline shape. This wrythen beaker has patterned ribbing covering the sides and continuing down into the foot. The most common style of maigeline has no foot unlike this piece. The underside of the base has a small kick.
