Antique Bohemian/German Ruby Flashed & Etched Glass Tankard c1880 (Code 0004)
A late 19th century Bohemian spa tankard in clear glass with ruby flash overlay. It is nicely etched with symbols for health and hard work etc. These were often purchased by wealthy patrons visiting spa resorts in the Bohemian, German and Swiss regions in the 19th and early 20th century. Taking the waters was a popular health remedy and in the 19th century it was of course much harder to visit these regions than today. Appropriately this tourist ware was often drink related and may well have been used by the patron of the resort at the time of their visit. This piece is quite small and with a thick rim and a good quality example.
Good order with minor wear, some light scratches etc as expected. A nice example.
