Wine glass/goblet - ID needed please
« on: October 12, 2010, 12:26:43 PM »
Hi!  This forum was recommended to me.  I'm a newcomer on here so first of all 'Hello!'.

I'm hoping that you'll be able to ID this wine glass/goblet.

I bought it for my mother in an antique shop whilst I was in Scotland this year.  It caught my eye as being a little different.

We're wondering whether it could be Czech as I've seen pieces in a similar colour from there.  I'm not sure though - the Czech's aren't exactly know for their wine!  We're both very curious about it and would love to know what it is for certain!

I'd also like a rough idea of how much it's worth.  We wouldn't sell it, but I'd like to know whether or not I got a bargain!

Thanks  :)

It's about as German as it gets - possibly by Theresienthal.

Thanks Ivo :)  I've been googling Theresienthal :D

Could you give me a rough age on it? 

Also, are there other makers that it could possibly be by?  I'm trying to find an image of a matching one, and as much other information as possible!  Bohemian glass is a new area for me.

try googling "roemer" it should bring up a ton of these. Time is any time between 1880 and yesterday. And please note Germany is not Bohemia.

Thanks again Ivo - I'll look into that now.

I must be having a slow day - I was thinking of Bavaria but typed Bohemia  ::) :)
