'Amen' glass, associated with the Jacobite cause
Add to album

'Amen' glasses are so-called because they are inscribed with verses from the Jacobite version of the National Anthem, which ends in 'Amen'. This example dates from around 1750.

The bowl has a crown over the letters 'JR' which are intertwined with the figure '8' - a reference to King James VIII of Scotland. The plain stem contains a 'tear'. The foot is engraved with the words 'To the Prosperity of the Family of Lochiell'.

The Camerons of Locheil were ardent Jacobites, and fought at Killiecrankie, Sheriffmuir and Culloden.
