Description
This is a Georgian, English, double series opaque twist wine glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1765. The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the bowl and the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot. The glass has a rounded funnel-shaped bowl measuring 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain and leads to a double series opaque twist stem consisting of a thirteen white "cotton" enamel strands wound around a central gauze. The stem leads to a conical foot that measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter. The glass is 15.3 cm (6.1 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. There are a couple of tiny inclusions in the metal of the bowl dating from manufacture and a collector's mark to the base of the foot. English lead glass weighing 146 g (~ 5 1/4 oz.). Quote stock number: 4894
