3 amazing scenes adorn this amazing large tumbler that dates, most certainly, to the mid 18th c. The engraved scenes, which include a 2 men dueling (apparently over a jug of whiskey), a knight on horseback who is busy killing some gargoyle type creature, and a woman, raising her broom in anger at a man in a tri-corner hat who is pointing at her basket of fruits? bread? Maybe there is a theme and story to this, but it could just be the engraver showing off his talents. There are all kinds of elements, like laurel wreath near the rim, sprigs, flowers, trees, arches, and more. Every time I look at it, I see something else. The glass stands 4" tall, the diameter is 2 3/4", and is in excellent condition. There is a small area near the thick rim which may have been repolished. Or it's just the natural form that the glass took during manufacture. Bottom is very scuffed - commensurate with its great age. There is no signature.
