Type 010 Mouth Blown Glass Tumbler

From Tender Co.: "Rather than being cast or mechanically mould blown, as most glassware is today, [Tender's] pieces are free-blown in the manner that glass has been worked since the First Century BC. During the blowing process, the rod on which the tumbler is made leaves a 'belly button' or punty mark on the base. The punty mark is sometimes ground away, to leave a perfectly smooth bottom, but to show its construction story, Tender's tumblers have the punty mark still showing."

- Mouth blown from lead-free glass
- Made using a single gather of molten glass
- Punty mark left intact where glass is separated from punty iron
