LOL, you make me laugh Paul! It is a low tumbler with a heavy (but footed) bottom. Have looked yet to see if there is a name. And you realize that I live in Canada, right. Where 100 years is old? This city was barely in existence at the turn of the 19/20th century. So I strongly suspect 19th century Lynn molded tumblers might be in short supply :-)

sounds a good glass Carolyn  -  unfortunately, looking for names of Stuart patterns can be a very long task - there are so many cut designs from this factory - just have a look some time at the size of the catalogue for this factory.

I had forgotten is was Canada - thought it was Oz  -  but probably true to say that anything 'Lynn moulded', and it's a feature that occurs on a variety of glass items, would have been made way back in the second half of the C18 - not the nineteenth - and as far as I know appears to have been a peculiarly British style.           
Doesn't mean you couldn't find one in your neck of the woods  -  glass is very good at travelling - but probably unlikely.
