Learn about Rummer

In England in the 18th and 19th century, "rummer" was the name given to a drinking glass for wine with a wide bowl and short stem joined to a circular domed or square foot. The glasses were not designed for drinking rum, as the name implies. The name "rummer" is a corruption of the German word Romer, as the early glasses were used for white wine from the Rhine region.
