Is This An Old Drinking Goblet/Rummer Or Not?

It is 5½ inches high and it weighs 240g. The pontil is not rough and there is virtually no ware to the base.

So it isn't old then? I could always fill it with wine and enjoy.  8)

With a rim finish like that it cannot be old - so I suggest you use it for white wine only.

Ivo,
Egri Bikaver, please, then it will be a rich amethyst, which we all know is so much more attractive than blue.   :lol: (OK, Bull's Blood, to non-Hungarian's) :lol:  :lol:.

TC, can't win them all, but your green vase was a better buy. You can drink 5 litres from that, preferably before you go to bed :lol:  :lol:

Which green vase is that? The one on the right, the one on the left, or the one in the middle.  :wink:

I would say that the pistachio ice cream is in the middle, the green vase is on the right and the fake 20th century wine glass is on the left. Or have i confused that with another post?  :)
