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.

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.

SHALLOW ROEMER OR COUPE

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

This type of Wald glass is called a Roemer.  Roemers (Dutch) or Römer (German) are wine and beer glasses that evolved in the Rhineland and the Netherlands from the 17th Century.  The glass below has a shallow bowl with raspberry prunts on the stem.  A shallow bowl is a less common shape for Roemers. For additional information on Roemers in the collection click on this link

This type of Roemer has never been called a coupe glass, however the dates of it’s development coincide with that of  the coupe. The champagne coupe is a shallow, broad-bowled, saucer shaped stemmed glass generally capable of containing 4 to 8 oz. (120 to 240 ml) of liquid. Legend has it the shape of the coupe was modelled on the breast of French queen Marie Antoinette, but the glass was designed in England over a century earlier especially for sparkling wine and champagne in 1663. The coupe was fashionable in France from its introduction in the 1700s until the 1970s, and in the United States from the 1930s to the 1980s. Champagne glasses (active link)
