Glasses-remery known since XVI century. They were common throughout Northern Europe; it was common to drink white wine. The tradition of making nemerov was revived in the nineteenth century. For the manufacture of remeron traditionally used so-called "forest glass" (it. Waldglas) had the characteristic greenish tint. Remer was blown from a single piece of glass; it had a rounded top, a long hollow stem and wide conical base, wrapped with glass yarns. The leg was decorated with the spherical convexity in the form of grape bunches (also called the "Malinki"). In addition to decorative, they perform a practical function, not allowing the glass to slip out of greasy fingers feasting.
