I just wanted to show off a couple of stunning 19th centuary glass goblets I absolutely love! they are both quite tall, approx...24.5cm tall 9-1/2 inches.

We inherited them a few years ago and unfortunately weren't told anything about their history. Would love to know something... anything!... If someone could help that would be great!

Thank you for looking....:-)

    the are beautiful! can't help with maker but the shape is called a roemer and it appears to be cased glass.

    I reckon these are nineteenth century Czech!
    Are they Harrach
    Haida, Julius Muehlhaus?
    Really nice gilding.
    I love that light blue overlay!

    Let's see what the Glasshounds have to say!
  3. Paul71 Paul71, 6 years ago
    Yes, römer in German, written out as "roemer" in English to accomodate the umlaut. They originated in the Alsace region of France, and many were and still are made there. Could possibly be Bohemian (Czech) or German. Most certainly European.
  4. Paul71 Paul71, 6 years ago
    These are traditional toasting glasses in Germany, that's why many of them are so fancy.

    Can I change that from nineteenth century Czech to nineteenth century Bohemian?
    Czechoslovakia didn't exist until 1918! Whoops!
    I love the double knops on the stems.
    Paul71 is right about the Römer shape: the semi-circular bow and the hollow foot are elements in the design here. Interestingly it veers away from the normal light green glass of the traditional 'rummer'/roemer. The blue is almost like the blue of Sèvres porcelain.
    Römer is the German term for Roman; and has nothing to do with 'rum'.
    Perhaps someone can tell us about the leaf design; grape, oak?

    I have googled roemer TallCakes! and have found one exact same shape but quite! different in design, didn't give the age which was annoying!.... is it Victorian or Georgian?... It has been wonderful to read all the comments many thanks to you all!

    Possibly a late comment;everything written above is correct - most probably Bohemian mid 19th century.And a pair! They did not make sets of 6 for sure.
    Rare find to have two intact. Have seen those for newly wedded couples.Therefore two of them,otherwise one would not buy two identical, and to find a pair after 160 years or so is virtually impossible. Were kept together all the time.
  13. inky inky, 6 years ago
    Thank you very much IVAN49! for stopping, any information about these beautiful goblets is good as we have none! As far as we know they have been in the family since the beginning, probably the reason why they still are together, and to think that they may have been given to a newly wed couple pleases me greatly! They were given to us because of our love of glass and family history. Thank you once again.

    Thank you Phil! and yes you are right, I don't wash them and when I have to pick them up I am extremely careful where I handle them....:-)
