Description

This is a hand-blown, Georgian, English, double series opaque twist stem wine glass dating from the mid 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 base of the foot.

The glass has a rounded funnel-shaped bowl measuring 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain and sits on a double series opaque twist stem consisting of seventeen "cotton" enamel strands wound around a central twist of two enamel cords. The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter. The glass is 15.5 cm (6.2 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious signs of restoration. There are a couple of extremely tiny inclusions in the metal of the bowl and a slightly larger one in the metal of the foot, all dating from manufacture. There is also an unburst air bubble in the foot towards the edge.

Lead glass weighing in at 123 g. ( ~ 4 1/2 oz.).
