An Imperial Eagle beaker (German: Reichsadlerhumpen), or eagle glass, was a popular drinking vessel from the 16th until the late 18th century in the Holy Roman Empire. The enamelled glass was decorated with a double-headed eagle, usually in the shape of a quaternion. The Reichsadler means "Imperial Eagle" or double-headed eagle which was the emblem of the empire, while "humpen" refers to a cylindrical drinking glass. These beakers became the essential medium to represent the most popular explanatory model for the emergence of the Empire: the quaternion theory as represented by Hans Burgkmair.

  • Un Reichsadlerhumpen, ou Adlerglas (verre à bière aigle impérial) est un récipient en verre très populaire du XVIe siècle à la fin du XVIIIe siècle dans le Saint-Empire romain germanique, décoré d'un aigle impérial à deux têtes, prenant généralement la forme d'un aigle quaternion (aigle impérial à deux têtes). Ces verres à bière étaient essentiels car leurs motifs expliquaient la constitution du Saint-Empire, selon la Quaterniontheorie (théorie des quaternions) exposée par Hans Burgkmair.

  • An Imperial Eagle beaker (German: Reichsadlerhumpen), or eagle glass, was a popular drinking vessel from the 16th until the late 18th century in the Holy Roman Empire. The enamelled glass was decorated with a double-headed eagle, usually in the shape of a quaternion. The Reichsadler means "Imperial Eagle" or double-headed eagle which was the emblem of the empire, while "humpen" refers to a cylindrical drinking glass. These beakers became the essential medium to represent the most popular explanatory model for the emergence of the Empire: the quaternion theory as represented by Hans Burgkmair. The Imperial Eagle beakers showed the solidarity between the owner and the Empire and were very popular because of their decorativeness and luminous colors. But these drinking vessels were also valued for their generous size. Equally popular were the electors' beakers, which were decorated with illustrations of the emperor and electors as the most important representatives of the Empire. Many good examples of Imperial Eagle beakers are on display in museums worldwide. At auctions well-preserved pieces achieve a selling price of up to several thousand Euros.

Le Reichsadlerhumpen témoignait de l'attachement de son propriétaire au Saint-Empire. Son effet décoratif et ses couleurs vives, tout comme sa grande capacité, étaient très appréciés. Les verres à bières de princes-électeurs bénéficiaient de la même popularité. Ceux-ci sont ornés de représentations de l'Empereur et des princes-électeurs, en tant que plus importants représentants du Saint-Empire. De nombreux modèles de Reichsadlerhumpen ont été préservés et exposés dans des musées du monde entier. Dans les ventes aux enchères, les pièces en bon état se vendent jusqu'à plusieurs milliers d'euros.
