Georgian Sunderland Bridge Glass Rummer


An early 19th century Sunderland bridge glass rummer or wine glass.

The glass has a bucket shaped bowl that is beautifully engraved with the iron Sunderland bridge that was built in 1796.

The glass has "Sunderland Bridge, George * Lynn" engraved below the bridge along with grapes, baskets, flowers and initials in a plaque to the reverse.

These glasses were produced to celebrate the bridge and the fact that it was at the time the largest single span cast iron bridge in the world.

The previous owner of the glass had sent it to the Sunderland museum and we include the information they provided with the glass.

The glass is of the highest quality and in very good condition.

In the past a replacement foot has been fired on and has a ground pontil mark underneath. (Circa 1830)

Height 16cm (6.3 inches)
Rim Diameter 8.5cm (3.3 inches)
Foot Diameter 7cm (2.8 inches)
