A wine glass with a shallow flared bowl set on a stem with two hollow knops above collars, supported on a conical foot.
A 1655 inventory of the Bonhomme brothers’ glasshouse in Lille lists “verres à boutons à la façon de Lille” (glasses with ‘buttons’ in the manner of Lille) and includes glasses with two, three, and four knops which probably refers to glasses of this type.
Liège and Lille were part of the Southern Netherlands in the 17th century, and glasses such as this one are usually attributed to this region, however, similar vessels were also produced in Laubach in Hesse, Germany.
