Germanic Wine Glass 

This German wine or goblet has a molded bowl, a stem with large bladed knop and folded foot.  This glass was bought more than two years before the Germanic wine with gold rim (22E) in the following post and from a different source.  This glass is slightly cruder and the molded bowl is not as sharp as the gold rimmed twin. They may have been made at the same factory and perhaps by the same hand nearly three hundred years ago.
