Sorry - this item now SOLD 

DESCRIPTION:
A rare and exquisite ratafia glass with trumpet bowl engraved with a floral boarder and flute moulded to the lowest three quarters, above an opaque twist stem made up of a multi-ply corkscrew inside a pair of multi-ply corkscrews.

Ratafias represent the zenith of elegance in English glass making during the eighteenth century and for this reason glass collector’s value them highly. As a result ale glasses are sometimes misleadingly given the attribution or epithet of ratafias. There is no doubt that this glass is a fine example of the ratafia at its greatest refinement with its height and comparative narrowness, long smooth curves and sinuous fluting.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 7⅝ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅝ inches;
Foot diameter 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
In the making of the glass the pontil has been snapped off quite short, taking an almost unnoticeable sliver of glass with it. The glass is in very good, original condition with average wear to the bowl and foot rims.

DESCRIPTION:
A well made Lynn wine glass with round funnel bowl embellished with three evenly spaced incised horizontal rings above an opaque twist stem made up of a pair of spiral tapes inside a pair of laminated spiral corkscrews standing on a plain conical foot. So-called “Lynn” glasses were assumed to have been made in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. However no evidence has been found of glassmaking in the area and it would seem more likely that they were made in the County city of Norwich. Lynn glasses can generally be divided into two types. The first type of Lynn glasses are lightly made with relatively small feet, rather indistinct rings and are manufactured from slightly cloudy, grey looking metal. The second, far more satisfactory type, are robustly and confidently made from beautifully clear lustrous metal with more pleasing proportions and clearly defined incised bands. Perhaps these two distinct types of Lynn are the products of different glass houses. This glass represents a superb example of the latter, superior type of Lynn glass.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 5⅞ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅛ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

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

DESCRIPTION:
An unusual ale glass of with an elongated round funnel bowl above a double series opaque twist stem with shoulder knop. The twist is fashioned with a pair of spiral tapes inside a pair of close multi-ply spiral bands. The glass stands on a plain conical foot. The glass is constructed of lovely clear lead crystal glass.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 7¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 3 inches.

CONDITION:
In good condition with a ⅜ inch section of the foot rim which feels slightly rough or sharp. This has resulted from when the glass was manufactured and is caused by there being a grooved tooling mark that travels diagonally across the outside edge of the foot rim. The existence of this tooling mark is a reassuring sign that there has been no restoration to the glass that is in excellent condition throughout.

Sold 

DESCRIPTION:
A charming example of the reasonably rare opaque twist cordial glass with helmet or domed foot the bowl being of round funnel style with an etched swag border and basal honeycomb moulding above a double series white opaque twist stem which contains a pair of spiral tapes surrounded by a single 15-ply spiral band all raised on a domed foot.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6⅛ inches;
Bowl diameter 1¼ inches;
Foot diameter 2½ inches.
Bowl capacity 0.8 fl. oz.

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with light wear to the underside of the foot and slightly heavier wear to the bowl rim.

NOTES:
This glass is very similar to the glass illustrated in Turnbull and Herron’s “Price Guide to English 18th Century Drinking Glasses” on page 239 where our attention is drawn to the “stand out” features of the form by being a cordial and having a domed foot. They also draw attention to the similarity in form to plain stem cordials usually attributed to being of Irish manufacture (see enlargement 1 with inset). It is interesting to note, too, the similarity of bowl shape in both examples: they both share the same infrequently seen parallel-sided variation of the round funnel bowl.

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.

DESCRIPTION:
A well formed lead crystal English wine goblet with relatively rare ovoid bowl petal moulded to the lower half above a double series opaque twist stem made up of a 16-ply spiral band outside a pair of spiral threads stranding on a plain conical foot with broken pontil mark. You will perhaps have noticed that I have dated this glass slightly later than is usual for DSOTs which are, by convention, generally dated to around 1765 or 1770. This is because the bowl is constructed in a very similar way to Adam inspired rummers (often with lemon squeezer bases) which were made from about 1785. The particularly crisp moulding along with a fairly thick bowl suggest that the glass was made at a similar time as these early rummers.

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 6¼ inches;
Bowl diameter –3⅛ inches;
Foot diameter – 3¼ inches.

CONDITION:
Excellent condition with the expected wear to bowl rim and bearing surface of the foot.

DESCRIPTION:
A most handsome cordial glass with a thick based bucket bowl above a double series opaque twist stem with an inner pair of spiral tapes surrounded by a pair of 11-ply spiral bands standing on a large plain conical foot with broken pontil mark.

DIMENSIONS:

Bowl diameter – 1⅞ inches;

CONDITION:
Particularly observant customers may be able to spot two pinpricks to the underside of the foot shown in picture 6 at 7 and 8 o’clock. These are within the confines of normal wear and tear but mentioned for accuracy. In good original condition with normal signs of wear to the bowl and foot rims.

Sorry - this item now SOLD 

DESCRIPTION:
This unusual Georgian wine glass has a rare form saucer-topped trumpet bowl over a double series opaque twist stem comprised of a pair of spiral tapes inside a 6-ply spiral band (one of which is an air ply which is probably incidental rather than deliberate). The stem stands on a plain conical foot with broken pontil mark. The metal has a slight bluish hue to it. A similar glass to this is described and illustrated in Turnbull and Herron’s “Price Guide to English 18th Century Drinking Glasses” page 228.

DIMENSIONS:
Height – 6 inches;
Bowl diameter – 2 1/4 inches;
Foot diameter – just under 3 inches.

CONDITION:
There is a small piece of frit halfway up the stem, which can be seen in photograph three to the left of the stem just over halfway up. The glass is in good condition with a few of the usual air inclusions and normal patterns of wear.

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.
