Learn about Ale Glass

A type of Georgian glass used for drinking beer. The first versions in use in the early 17th century had a short stem and a small conical bowl, but by the later 17th century the shape had evolved, with the vessel being taller and having a longer stem and a rounded conical bowl. The bowl was sometimes decorated with engravings of barley ears or hops.
