Roemer Glasses Photos

Roemer wine glasses (Römer in German) have globular vessel tops on cylindrical stems which flair at the bottom as a stand. The thick stems mostly have circles of bumpy glass (prunts) applied to prevent these glasses from slipping from greasy fingers. Many of the bowls of these 17th-18thC examples are etched with scenes of grapes or coats of arms.
