Mead/White Wine Glass

C 1710/20

Item Ref: 326

A very good mead or white wine glass ,although traditionally referred to as mead glasses the current thoughts are that these were more than likely made to use with white wine, the roemer shape bowl being well documented for use with white wine ,in particular German Rhenish white that was very popular in England at the time .

A beautifully made glass in superb original condition.
