Early Roemer

Posted in 3. European Glass, CATEGORIES OF GLASS TYPES ON THIS SITE, Roemers by Allaire Collection of Glass on August 19, 2017

EARLY ROEMER

The restored ovoid bowl on this early Roemer is attached to an open stem decorated with pulled prunts. This Roemer bowl is more flared than example 40E. Unlike later Roemers there is no spiral foot only a pinched “toed” base ring. This form is closer to the Berkemeyer example 12E, which has a flared bowl. The discoloration on this early Roemer is due to the soil where it was found.

This American bowl (1780-1800) is very similar in style and shape to a dark green wald glass beaker (1500-1550) and points to how art repeats itself time after time.

Small Glass Pocket Tumbler with White Trailing

Posted in 3. European Glass, CATEGORIES OF GLASS TYPES ON THIS SITE, Spanish Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on August 10, 2017

Small Glass Pocket Tumbler with White Trailing

 This tumbler is a golden honey color with thin white trailing. This piece is unusual because of its color, type of trailing and its small size.  A glass pocket tumbler was carried by a traveler in a pouch or pocket and used for drinking.  A large number of pocket tumblers were made in Spain from the early-17th though the late-18th century.  The origin of the piece could be Spain, or Germany.  No parallels could be found.
