Google doesn't find anything on the glass, but some info on the company - and loads of advertising stamps.

Company founded 1879 in Hannover - and still striving:
In 1912 name "Appels Delikatessen" replaced by "Appel Feinkost" - should help to date the glass.

Appel Feinkost now located in Cuxhaven:

Advertising label (size - given in similiar offers: varying around 4 cm x 5 cm)

Another one -  supposed to be used  1900 ...1918 (after 1912?)
Seems like they were collected like Panini pictures today (perforation similar to stamps).

More examples on

Stamps were designed by artists like  Heinz Keune and Aenne Koken
Wolf Seelentag, St.Gallen
