The origin of the Glass-Bottom Tankard is believed to have been related to keeping a wary eye on your surroundings and fellow drinkers. Once your tankard was empty enough to require tilting, it allowed viewing through the glass bottom. The glass base thus minimized personal peril in rough or unfamiliar locations. This led to the old English toast, “Here’s looking at you.”

Here is a heavily etched or engraved tankard with a lovely leaf vine and floral detail. It has a glass bottom. It appears to be lined with pewter. The surface shows the passage of time as you can see from the pictures. No attempt has been made to clean. It is 5 1/4 inches tall, the mouth opening is 3 inches, the bottom is 4 3/8 inches across and the handle is a generous 3 1/2 inches.

Reduced to sell for only $15.
