This is a late Georgian, Masonic-engraved small firing glass dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800. The glass is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the base. The glass has a waisted bucket-shaped bowl measuring 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is decorated with an engraved set square and compasses, a small sun and the letters "SS", presumably those of the owner. The bowl ends in a thick firing base which measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter. The glass is 6.3 cm (2.5 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. It is made from lead metal weighing 165 g. (~ 6 oz.).
