Passglas, Anonymous, 1600 - 1699

glass (material), h 27.7cm × d 9.3cm. More details

This type of tall, cylindrical glass is known in English by its German name, Passglas. The body of this one is octagonal at the top, just below the edge. That was achieved by pressing an octagonal mould into the vessel before the molten glass had fully cooled and thus was still ductile.
