Hi, This One Had Me Baffled For A While Even With The Writing & Engraved Picture I Couldn't Find Anything ... I Assumed This Was A Wine Goblet But It Turned Out To Be A Mineral Water Goblet From Pyrmont, Germany ... The Writing Says Dunst Hohle Or Gas Grotto Which Is A Mineral Water Spring ... See The Page I Found In A Book From 1838 ... It's 5.5" Or 14cm Tall & Emerald Or Apple Green Uranium/Vaseline Glass ... The Stem Is Hollow & All Sides Cut & Polished ... Cheers Mark

Dunst Is German For Mist Or Haze & Hohle Is Hole Or Hollow But It Made No Sense Until I Found The Book Online & It All Became Clear ... The Book Is ...
