Description

This is a hand-blown, Georgian, English facet cut stem small wine glass dating from the end of the 18th Century. The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the base of the foot commensurate with some 230 years of use.

The glass has an ovoid-shaped bowl measuring 4.7 cm (1.9 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain save for a basal band of five cut printies and sits on a hexagonally facet cut stem which reaches up into the base of the bowl as scale cuts interspersed with the printies. The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter and displays a rough pontil mark to the base. The glass is 11.8 cm (4.7 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.

It is made from English lead metal weighing in at 123 g. (~ 4 1/4 oz.).
