Spanish Pocket Tumbler

Posted in Uncategorized by Allaire Collection of Glass on June 27, 2016

This pocket tumbler is a glass which was carried by a traveler in a pouch or pocket.  This tumbler was blown and flattened to an oval shape then decorated with a chain trailing pattern. A large number of pocket tumblers were made in Spain from the early-17th though the late-18th century.  The origin and date of this glass is unknown because no parallels could be found.
