45E Large Colorless Roemer

45E Large Colorless Roemer

Size: 16 cm Date: 1700-1720

Description:  This is a large clear colorless Roemer.  It has a high slightly concave foot with folded rim and a wide hemispherical bowl. The stem is decorated with six raspberry prunts and a kick where it attaches to the foot.

Remarks:  It beautiful tall Roemer has real presence and is in great condition.  The majority of this type were probably made in Northern Germany and used to drink beer. Many are engraved and the decoration lends support to the hypothesis that they originated in that region. (ref: Theuerkaauff-Liederwald 1969 P. 55-56)
