An early 19th century English glass rummer engraved with the arms of the Howard Family

Description:

An early 19th century English glass rummer engraved with the arms of the Howard Family. Circa 1820. The large bowl is decorated around the lip with a wide band of hand etched beading and stars and is finely engraved to the front with the arms of the Howard family and sits on a short flared stem merging with a large circular foot typical of the period being larger and thicker than the earlier Georgian glass rummers. Rummers used for drinking rum punch were originally produced in England from around 1780 and were amongst the first English glasses to have engraved decoration and were often produced for commemorative purposes and as souvenirs. Provenance: Commissioned by Henry Howard (1757 - 1842) of Corby Castle in Cumbria.
