The Roemer is a famous 17th century wine glass, a time during which it was a status symbol that also graced many paintings. For example, a Roemer can be found in the Still Life with Gilded Cup by Willem Claesz. Heda. The studs on the glass stem were not merely decorative: they provided more grip for the oily hands of table companions.
