We collect 'old used drinking glasses'. Started with a stoneware flask, unmarked. Worked our way up to pewter. Then a few pieces of glass stemware (toasting glasses, twisted stems, colored twisted stems, aka just 'twists'). Added an assortment of flips in different sizes. Now collecting REALLY old stoneware 'used drinking vessels'. Here's some...

From left to right: Diapered stoneware jug with applied armorial roundels/coat of arms The jug is signed and dated dated 1594. Next is a Bartmann jug, dated 1599, made in Frechen. Last is another Bartmann jug with a fat belly, c. 1540.

Here's some of the glass (mostly 1700s):

Would love to discuss and learn from anybody else delving into the 1500-1700 period.
