Probably, we've seen many examples of both glass and ceramic items being repaired and used from years past. The idea of a throwaway society is a relatively modern one...  certainly earlier generations made things last much longer than folks do these days. Perhaps your glasses had a weak point in the stem where the breaks were fixed?

Well,

either only one of this roemers was broken and fixed and the other one got the metal to make him look similar or both roemers were broken and treated this way. :huh:
If you want to know it for sure: Take away the applied metal. But maybe you will have two broken roemers and no way to fix them again.

Thanks for your replies all....Does this repair greatly devalue the roemers? To be honest, I will be keeping them just because they are Theresienthal and repair or no - in my opinion, they have their place in history and a place in my heart now.  :)

In Germany there are not more than five specialised collectors of items from the glassworks of Theresienthal. As far as i know each of these collectors has got at least one roemer 793 in nearly mint condition. I myself have got five roemers 793 in different colours and with different decorations in my collection. End of May an auction sale will offer three of these roemers 793 (in a different colour but) undamaged without limit. I expect them to be sold for around 100 Euro (together, not each!). It is great that your roemers got a place in your heart and they surely have their place in history, but none of us collectors would give them a place in his collection.
Sorry, but that is the reality.

Thanks Stephan, for your honesty, at least I know how a "Theresienthal" roemer looks and feels and can look out for an undamaged one or two ;D

Your web site is excellent, but is there an English version? My German is very limited.  :-[

I am sorry, but my English is very limited. That is the reason why up to now i didn`t be able to edit an English version of my website. And without some help of someone who has great knowledge in English and Glass it won`t change.  :cry:

Whilst I think an English version of your site would be an extremely useful resource to the glass world - I know too little about glass. Had I known more, I would defnitely volunteer to help you.

Hope I don't get my knuckles rapped but, perhaps, someone else here might be able to help?????
