Description

This is a scarce Georgian, three knop double series opaque twist wine glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1765.

The glass is in excellent condition for its age. It shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the bottom of the foot.

The glass has a bell-shaped bowl measuring 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain and sits on a rare three knop double series opaque twist stem consisting of four enamel cords wound around a central gauze with shoulder, medial and basal knops. The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter. The glass is an elegant 17 cm (6.8 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any obvious signs of restoration. There are two small white inclusions in the metal of the foot. There is a collector's sticker to the top of the foot.

English lead glass weighing in at 183 g. (~ 6 1/2 oz.).

Provenance: purchased by the prior owner from a Mrs. Wise via Sothebys in January 1959.
