Description

This is a large, Continental (probably Bohemian), late Georgian, hand-blown, hand-cut, glass beer tumbler dating from the early 19th century, c1810, and capable of holding more than one pint (~ 500 ml.) of liquid.

The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use.

The glass has a bucket-shaped bowl measuring 10.5 cm (4.2 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is shallow cut with a band of printies below the rim on top of a band of swags on top of a band of large stars interspersed with panel cuts, above a second band of swags and printies. The bowl ends in a base which measures 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter and carries a polished out pontil mark. The glass is 13.7 cm (5.5 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. The glass weighs 356 g. (~ 12 1/2 oz.).

A lovely tumbler, perfect for a present for the home beer drinker.
