My Collection

Here are some of my favorites.  Most of these were probably made between about 1890 and 1910.


Too bad the etched and hand-enamaled designs don't show up better.  The close-ups will give you an idea how they really look. 

Here is another group of favorites.






The goblets shown above are a variation of a style known as a römer or roemer.  The name comes from the German word for "Roman" and  refers to the style of goblet used by Roman troops occupying the area during the peak years of the Roman Empire.    This picture is of what I consider to be a classic römer shape.

This next one is a modern rendition and for contrast, a pair of very old ones.  I'm not sure but these could even be 18th century.
