Antique Plain Stem Toastmasters’ Firing Glass c.1740

Sorry - this item now SOLD 

DESCRIPTION:
This heavyweight bruiser of a glass has a deceptive round funnel bowl over a plain stem standing on an exceptionally large conical firing foot. These types of glass are often wrongly dated as being 19th century whereas they are somewhat earlier, being made from 1740-65. Barrington Haynes considered plain stem glasses as being undervalued and it would still seem that his views on the form have been ignored. Of these particular glasses he says, “Dram glasses are very scarce with a firing foot.” And this one is an exceptional example of the type in being boldly made and astonishingly heavy, weighing in at a little under a pound, 14½ oz. It could also be described as a toastmasters’ glass on account of the deceptive bowl. This glass was sold at Sotheby’s 14th November 1947 lot 202 and came from the Henry Brown Collection.

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 5 inches;
Bowl diameter – 2¼ inches;
Foot diameter – 3¼ inches.

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with a few small inclusions and modest wear to the bowl and foot rims. No restoration.

£650 

DESCRIPTION:
An idiosyncratic English lead crystal wine glass with an unusual bowl form. The bowl is of double-ogee form with flute moulding to the lower half above a double series opaque twist stem comprised of a spiral gauze inside a pair of corkscrews standing on a plain conical conical foot. The opaque twist represents the pinnacle of English glass-making at its best: it is beautifully and accurately made and has an attractive greyish hue (the kind of subtle white you might find in a Farrow & Ball paint catalogue).

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 5½ inches;
Bowl diameter – 2¼ inches;
Foot diameter – 2⅝ inches.

CONDITION:
The bowl of this characterful glass is not perfectly symmetrical and there is the tiniest very shallow fleabite to the underside of the foot, which can just be seen at 10 o’clock on picture 6. Other than this the glass is in excellent condition with no restoration.

Sorry, this item now SOLD 

DESCRIPTION:
A rare and most elegant example of a mixed twist wine flute with trumpet bowl above a mixed twist stem composed of a central spiral white enamel gauze surrounded by a pair of mercury air spirals standing on a plain conical foot with broken pontil mark. According to Barrington Haynes mixed twists and coloured twists, between them, make up only 2½% of eighteenth century glasses and that of the two types of stem the mixed twist makes up 44% of the group. In Churchill’s Glass Notes of 1950 this type of glass appears in the Mixed and Colour Twist group under Section 1 A subsection 10.ii (a) and would have cost you all of seven pounds ten shillings: the glass hasn’t changed but unfortunately during the intervening years the prices has gone up slightly.

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 7¼ inches;
Bowl diameter – 2⅜ inches;
Foot diameter – 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
The glass is in faultless condition with light wear to the foot and the bowl rims.
