The important thing is the seller is acknowledging that these were cheap and cheerful modern items, unlike the sellers insisting they are serious antiques.

Although this doesn't have the ship engraving, I'm sure it's the same glass.

the listing acknowledges:

"Kindly note,

I have had conflicting advice regarding the exact age of this tankard and I'm by no means an expert myself and have had to be advised on it. To the best of my current knowledge and various bits of information from various sources, and on balance, the existing description appears to be correct."

The tankard has a completely different type of bubbles to the "Venetian" glass and the handle is wrong for the supposed date. I think both are wildy optimistic descriptions

The seller of the Roemer glass describes it as bottle glass full of bubbles designed to be cheap...or tourist tat in other words. Although I wouldn’t want to buy it, there seemed to be no attempt to inflate the price of their item so it didn’t sound like an unreasonable story except maybe they weren’t made locally.

There is another posting on this subject, "Oriental sailing boat engraving" on the 27th august 2016. Sorry I cant do the link for it.
Hope it is of some use.
