Description

This is a small, late Georgian, hand-blown, engraved rummer glass dating from the beginning of the 19th century, c1820.

The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use. The bowl is nicely striated. There is a polished out pontil mark on the base of the foot.

The glass has an ovoid-shaped bowl measuring 7.3 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is engraved with a meandering band of tulips and is cut to the lower half with petal flutes. The bowl sits on a four-sided vertically facet cut stem and a square foot which measures 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) across. The glass is 11.2 cm (4.5 inches) in height. There is a small slither chip to one edge of the foot and the normal light chipping to corners and edges of the foot as is usual with a square footed glass of this period. There are no other chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. There is a tiny dark inclusion in the metal of the bowl dating from manufacture.

It is made from lead metal weighing in at 268 g. (~ 9 1/2 oz.). A pretty little rummer.
