This is a nicely engraved Georgian plain stem wine glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750. The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot commensurate with 250+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot. The glass has an ogee bowl measuring 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is nicely engraved with a flower, possibly a daisy, and a Hoho bird to the reverse. The bowl sits on a plain stem and a conical, folded foot that measures 7.1 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter. The glass is 14.7 cm (5.9 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. It is made from English lead metal. It weighs 117 g. (~ 4 1/4 oz.). A superior example of an engraved plain stem glass.
