Description

This is a rare set of six double series opaque twist (DSOT) wine glasses dating from the mid 18th century, c1765.

The glasses appear to be in excellent condition for their age. This means, of course, that they show the age related wear and tear to both the rims of the bowls and to the rims of the feet commensurate with 200+ years of use. They have rough pontil marks on the feet which are nicely striated as are the bowls.

The glasses have rounded funnel bowls measuring 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rims. The bowls sit on double series opaque twist stems consisting of two broad tapes wound around a central twist of two enamel strands. The stems lead to conical feet which measure 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter. The glasses themselves are 15.5 cm (6.2 inches) in height. The foot rims of three of the glasses have had a light professional trim. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any other obvious evidence of restoration. The dimensions of the glasses vary slightly around the figures shown as they are hand blown

They are made from lead metal.
