Tumblers

September 24, 2020

Glass tumblersThese tumblers were found during the 2006 excavation of an early 1840s–1860s privy in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. The privy produced remains of at least eight glass tumblers; one was nearly complete, and the rest were broken. All eight tumblers are made of clear glass, and seven have a paneled design, while the eighth has a ribbed design. The nearly complete tumbler has a paneled design and is about 3¾ inches tall.
