Description
Technical Description A very fine 18th-century composite wine glass. It has a bell bowl with a solid section at the base with a shoulder knopped multi spiral air twist below, the air drawn down from the solid section above. This sits on double air beaded knops with a short plain section above a basal knop. Conical foot. Date & Origin England, C1760. Period of George III. Dimensions Height: 16.6cm, Rim diameter: 6.6cm, Foot diameter: 7.5cm Comments A composite stem is made up from two or more recognised stem forms, e.g. plain stem & opaque twist stem, opaque twist stem & air twist stem or knops, air twist stem or knops & plain stem etc. This example is particularly fine example. You can see various composite stem glasses in Bickerton starting on page 188. Composite Stems form a very small section of the overall 18th cen glass forms and production levels were small and as such, they are highly desirable and difficult to source. This glass comes from the Michael Wallis collection which took over 45 years to build and contains over 250 drinking glasses, covering all forms from the 18th century, many exceptionally rare. They will all be presented by Exhibit over the coming weeks and months.
