A cylindrical beaker shape with applied prunts which was used throughout the late medieval period in Europe.
A glass of this shape is contained in the collection of the Corning Glass Museum in Corning, New York (inset photo, right).

Budget priced and less delicate than some of our other glassware, this glass is sturdy enough for everyday use and will travel safely to reenactments and events in your basket. Holds a full 14 oz., which makes it perfect for reenactors for whom a usual reproduction glass is too small.
