All of the Roemers shown in the post are in the Allaire Collection of Glass


Early Roemers have an ovoid bowl attached to an open stem decorated with pulled prunts and a foot with pinched toes. Unlike later Roemers like example 58E there is no spiral foot. The early Roemer form is closer to the Berkemeyer, the name given to another early Roemer type which has a flared bowl. See example E12. Roemer 56E has a slightly flared ovoid bowl. The discoloration on this early Roemer 56E, is due to the soil where it was found. Both 56E and 40E have a restored bowls. Early Roemers generally come from the Rhineland and Netherlands
