Hello,

For our wedding gift, my aunt gave me a few boxes of random china and glassware that were "her treasures". I would like to know what these treasures are. I have five of these very thick stemmed goblet looking things. The stem looks very similar to the manhattan style of depression glass. The pattern is etched into a gold leaf looking band.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for this great site and your willingness to help!

Sara, hi and welcome to the board!

These are known as rummers, or in plain speak: French/German white wine glasses. My son has quite a collection of them - all fairly recent and many still being sold. He loves them as they are almost impossible to tip over, even for a ham-fisted lad! ;) http://www.yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/thumbnails.php?album=42 <--- just some of his!

Yours are rather nice!

Also known as römers or roemers.

This style has been around for a very long time http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rummer , though yours are fairly modern.

Here are a couple of mine, probably very late 19th/early 20th century

The latter often associated with Schachtenbach Hütte ~1860-1880, Christine.  :)

Thanks Dirk  :-* (I've seen ones likes the green and white one in Silber & Fleming, but no hints of origin)

 :-* back! Sure you've already found a few with google... I think Uwe Wolf has some on his site, too. :)

@Sara: Think your rummers are 50's onward, too. Quite nice since not as over-decorated as others - good balance.  :)

Thanks for all the help! I probably should have guessed they were European as my aunt lived in Germany for many years including her married life. Sorry for the late response - we had a storm and I've been without power for a while. Do you know if there's a way to determine a manufacturer? Obviously I was going off the pattern of the glass before, but now I have no idea.

Are the stems on yours solid, hollow with a base, or open bottomed? I've seen all three types, so was curious as to which yours had.

The bottom is definitely closed, and they are quite heavy, so I would guess they are solid glass bases.

Back again - I'm cleaning out the basement and am hoping to get rid of these roemers. I have 5 of them in perfect condition. My great aunt told me more about them at Christmas. She said she got them from her friend in Germany when she lived there a long time ago. They were her friend's grandparents' - so that would make them tremendously old. I believe you all (the experts) if you say the pattern is from the 50's more than I believe my great aunt's story. I think she is trying to guilt me into keeping them. If someone could give me a price estimate for the set of 5, I'd love to know so I can decide if it's worth the trouble of selling or just donating.

Thanks!
