Web Description: 
The glass products of Jerome Bowes and Robert Mansell, two successful English glassmakers of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, can be clearly identified archeologically. Many of these styles were popular for nearly 50 years. Perhaps the most common and readily identified is the goblet with a cigar stem. The stem of this vessel was made in the shape of a tall inverted baluster, the base was low and flaring, and the bowl was usually tall and tapered. This form was almost exclusively English, and it probably copied silver fashions of the period. It is also possible to identify parallels in pewter.
