This shot glass is a reproduction of a small beaker found at Jamestown. It was used for holding brandy or other spirits. Three-fourths of the original beaker was recovered. Four raspberry prunts decorate its sides. These prunts are believed to have been practical as well as decorative by helping users grip the glass more firmly. This piece dates from the late 17th century. The Brandy Shot Glass is approx. 2”tall and 1 1/2” in diameter.
All of the Jamestown Glasshouse produced pieces are hand-blown and crafted by local artisans. The natural color of glass is green so if you seek historical accuracy then your best selection is the green glass items. Since every piece is hand blown and crafted there will be slight irregularities and therefore no two items will be exactly the same.
