£560 

DESCRIPTION:
A classic “Kit-Cat” type balustroid wine glass. This particularly elegant and well proportioned example has a drawn trumpet bowl above a balustroid stem comprised of a nicely centred elongated tear and an inverted baluster knop containing a tiny elongated tear all standing on a folded conical foot with broken pontil mark. Mysteriously, this type of glass has become known as a Kit-Cat glass, named after the glasses depicted in a painting of two members of the Kit-Cat Club holding wine glasses by Sir Godfrey Kneller (1646-1721). The mystery is - why have 1740 balustroid glasses with inverted baluster knops become identified with the 1720 heavy baluster glasses with the true-baluster knopped stems depicted by Kneller? The answer may well be that both glasses "wear their knops around their ankles".

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 6 inches;
Bowl diameter – 2⅜ inches;
Foot diameter – 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with a couple of enclosed air inclusions in the foot and normal signs of wear to the bowl and foot rims.

A substantial and well-made Georgian wine glass with a bell bowl set on a double series opaque twist comprised of a multi-ply corkscrew inside a pair of corkscrew twists set on a plain conical foot. A charming feature of the twist is that there is an air "chaser" running alongside the inside edge of one of the corkscrew twists which catches the light every so often. The glass stands 6 3/4 inches tall with a bowl diameter of 2 7/8 inches and 3-inch foot. There is one minor frit and a couple of small soot inclusions in the foot. There is light age related wear to the foot and overall the glass is in good condition.

Bickerton illustrates a similar wine glass in his book, Eighteenth Century English Drinking Glasses, on page 206 fig. 603 and classifies the stem as a single series opaque twist. However, it can be argued this classification is erroneous and that the glass should be considered as being a mixed twist. The glass offered here is in some ways superior to the one illustrated by Bickerton in that this glass has a rib moulded round funnel bowl as oppposed to the rather austere plain ogee bowl in Bickerton's example. The stem is made up of an elongated tear which interestingly and confusingly reflects the surrounding four spiral tapes to make the stem look more complex than it actually is. The foot is of the plain conical form. The glass measures 14 cm tall, 4.9 cm across the bowl and the foot 6.9 cm. The glass is in fine condition with normal age related wear to the bowl and foot rims. It should be mentioned that there is a small "seed" in the bowl which can be seen in picture two.
