    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

      Hi Potrero, I Eventually Found The Book With Dunst Hohle Online But It Was Only After Remembering Reading A Real Book By Richard Sibbs From 1633 That I Realized The S's Were Written As F's ... So I Finally Got The Spelling Wright & Found It ... I'm Assuming It's Quite Old Then But Really Have No Other Reference ... Translating It From German To English Didn't Help ... 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 ...
