Engraved tumbler or beer glass

Stock Number: 3944

This is what we believe to be an early Victorian, hand-blown, Continental, glass tumbler dating from the early to mid 19th century, c1840. 
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 170 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 etched with a series of three naive three-masted ships between circular cartouches.   The bowl ends in a base which measures 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in diameter and carries a rough pontil mark.  The glass is 13.2 cm (5.3 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
A lovely tumbler, perfect for a modern serving of beer.
