Hollow stem-ribbon trail "Roemer" style glass
« on: August 10, 2008, 06:07:38 PM »

Can anyone shed any light on this glass please?

It has a hollow stem in clear glass and then a trail of light green glass around the outside with three prunts at the top.  (The prunt design is one big circle in the middle with six small ones around it).  The glass is just over six inches tall.

From what I can ascertain, these Roemer style glasses were mainly made on the continent, but I believe some were also made by English glassworks(?).

How can you tell the difference?  (Is it English or continental?)

Also, how old is it likely to be?  (Late Victorian?)

Have you looked at http://www.roemer-aus-theresienthal.de/ as a first step ?

Thanks for the reply.  I had attempted to search through that site, although my German is "nicht" good!  I could see similarities in the design, the only problem was that I could say the same about some English designed glasses.

I don't know if it will help, but alongside buying a set of these glasses I bought the decanter, tray and tiny glasses (hopefully!) shown in the photographs below.  Assuming they are all by the same glassworks, do they jog any memories/points of reference?

The decanter is approx. 9 inches tall (with a hollow stopper) the tray approx. 10.5 inches wide (with a polished out pontil mark) and the tiny glasses appox. 2.5 inches tall.

Have a look through Pamela's catalogues website - I found a lot of roemers in the Krug & Mundt 1906 catalogue, you might find match there. http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Krug-Mundt-1906.98.0.html
