Large beakers were made in Nuremberg and Bohemia from the 16th century. This exaple is quite moderate in size compared to some. There is a very large diamond point engraved and dated exampe with the Victoria and Albert from the late 16th century. Early exampes are straight sided with  disc foot. There are some later waisted examples with flared rims and prunts that resemble roemer glasses.

This tapered example is from the second half of the 18th century. The capacity is a little over a quart !
