Beautiful thick handblown and hand cut-glass.
The cutting and engraving on this antique glass is done by hand with a copper wheel.
Fully decorated with grapes, grape leaves and grapevines.
This large glass or vase is known in the Netherlands as a 'grape rinser'
Whether this glass was to hold 'Flip' (a colonial-era mixed drink consisting of beer, rum and sugar which was heated by dunking a hot iron poker into the mixture, causing the beverage to froth or flip) or to rinse grapes in, now this glass makes a perfect eye-catching flower vase.
