Good point - I looked closely through my Danish references, and pretty much all of the glasses in this form pre-1885 have significantly larger feet in proportion to the glasses.

UCF — While your friend's in-laws could be touchy about deceptive repro, there is no question of that with this attractive pair.   They are just nice old-style hand-made glasses, around 100 years old give or take a decade or two.   The sort of glasses they could quite happily use.

A local estate agent buys all my unwanted glasses, particularly unattributable pressed and partly-pressed rummers.   He uses them at parties.   Everyone gets their own individual glass, and there are jugs of water and old ice buckets at strategic locations for those wishing to change drinks to rinse their glass.   Works a treat and saves on the washing up.   People love drinking from antique glasses.
