'Nuppenbecger' (Prunted Glass)

Cylindrical glassware covered with prunts and with pronounced 'hump' in the inside bottom appear as early as the 13th C. Early glassware of this type was very short, with cups standing as little as 2" tall. Between the 13th and 16th C they grew tall, with 16th C. examples towering to 12" or more in height.

Our example represents the middle period, when glasses were moderately sized. An example of this style may be seen in the painting 'The Last Supper' by Jaume Huguet (1470) -top right-, while and example of extreme height may be seen in 'The Last Supper' by Martin Schaffner (1521) -below-.

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 without worry.
