This is a scarce engraved Georgian plain stem wine glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750, and celebrating duck hunting or a pub called "Tally Ho". 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 a trumpet bowl measuring 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is engraved with a duck or goose in grassland above which sits the legend "Tally Ho". The bowl sits on an extruded plain stem containing a large air tear which reaches up into the bowl where it is finished off with a small indent. The stem leads to a conical, folded foot that measures 7.3 cm (2.9 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 138 g. (~ 5 oz.).
