Krautsrunk Beaker from The Middle Ages

Posted in 3. European Glass, Medieval Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on March 10, 2017

Krautsrunk is the German word for cabbage stalk.  In glass it is a type of beaker with a cup-shaped mouth curving outward above an encircling thread and a barrel shaped body decorated with prunts. These were made mostly in Germany roughly between 1490-1530.   It is part of group of glasses called forest or wald glass and usually is a rich dark green color. The krautsrkunk along with the berkemeyer were the forerunners of the roemer. It is a “must have” for anyone who collects Medieval glass and is rather rare.

WARZENBEACHER (wart beaker)

Posted in 3. European Glass, Medieval Glass by Allaire Collection of Glass on December 18, 2015

Warzenbecher (German) literally means wart beaker also called a bossed beaker.  This is a small olive-tinted beaker molded with bosses and having a high kick in base. There are two types of beakers with this name. The first is generally lighter in color, weight and from the Netherlands as shown in this example. It is made by mould-blown decoration of drops, tears or warts on the tumbler. The bottom of this beaker has a pattern with a star derived from the mould.  The second type is made of heavy and thick green glass in the shape of a tumbler and decorated with scattered prunts of irregular shapes or raspberry prunts. The prunts are applied to the beaker as molten blobs of glass.

Maigelein from the Middle Ages

A Maigelein is a type of wine glass in a group of green glasses called Waldglas (forest-glass). They were made in the later Middle Ages in northern Germany, the Low Countries, and central Europe. The color came from the presence of impurities (iron oxide) in the raw materials. This cup has a pattern-molded design with a high kick. (also see Maigelein 49E)
