DESCRIPTION:
A good example of a commemorative goblet celebrating the construction of what was the largest single span bridge in the world over the River Wear at Sunderland. Strictly speaking the actual bridge being celebrated was the Wearmouth Bridge even though these glasses frequently have the legend as engraved on this glass of SUNDERLAND BRIDGE. The bridge was completed in 1796 and brought prosperity to the local area. The bridge attracted visitors and these glasses were made chiefly as souvenirs.

We have more, identical, examples from the same set as this. Please enquire,

DIMENSIONS:
Height 5½ inches;
Bowl diameter 3½ inches;
Foot diameter 3 inches.

CONDITION:
The glass has no condition issues. It has had an easy life and shows only minimal wear to the underside of the foot and the bowl rim.

DESCRIPTION:
The rummers have bucket bowls engraved each with a depiction of a “pilot cutter” with the name BROTHERS engraved below. There are engraved hops and barley and also a monogram on each glass. The bowl is supported with a tapering triple annulated knopped stem with a medial bladed knop all standing on a plain conical foot. The engraving on these glasses is of exceptionally good quality, being both crisply executed and depiction of the sailing vessels is accurately observed.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 5⅛-5¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 3⅝ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
This pair of rummers have obviously been lovingly cared for and treasured (or perhaps hidden and forgotten) for nearly 200 years, because, apart from the usual frit, cinder and air inclusions from manufacture (see enlargements 2 and 5 to see one example of each type) they are faultless and in remarkably clean condition.

NOTES:
Considering their subject matter and their origin it is seems quite possible that the vessel depicted was a Trinity House cutter used in piloting ships into the mouth of the Tyne.
