DESCRIPTION:
A very handsome, elegant toasting glass made in two parts, the thin plain stem being drawn from the trumpet bowl. The plain conical foot completes the second part of the glass. The glass is made of wonderfully dense, high lead content metal leading to the glass feeling reassuringly heavy and silky in the hand and giving the glass a pleasing oily grey look.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 7⅞ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 3⅛ inches.

CONDITION:
In fine condition with the expected signs of wear to the foot and bowl rims.

Sorry - this item now SOLD 

DESCRIPTION:
A substantial cordial glass of a type often associated with being of Irish origin, the heavy based round funnel bowl above a thick plain stem with an elongated tear running from the bottom of the bowl towards the lower part of the stem and then re-emerging as short basal tear. The glass stands on a domed foot. Although the glass is substantially made (240 g) it still maintains a pleasing elegance due to its fine proportions.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6¾ inches;
Bowl diameter 2 inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
This glass is in excellent condition showing the expected age related wear to the foot and bowl rims.

Bowl diameters 2¼ inches;
Foot diameters 3 inches.

DESCRIPTION:
A very satisfactory simple and nicely proportioned Georgian mid-eighteenth century lead metal wine glass of solid composition with a large bucket bowl above a plain stem standing on plain conical foot with pontil mark.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 5¾ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅜ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
As in many wine glasses of the period there are some air bubbles… one in the bottom of the bowl and another one in the foot (the latter just visible in photograph 6 at 5 o’clock near the pontil mark) both enclosed, unobtrusive and about 2 mm in diameter. This glass is in very good condition with the expected signs of wear.

NOTES:
This robust and practical glass would be suitable to use without too much anxiety. It would perfectly compliment a bottle of Port or perhaps a spot of Madeira.

DESCRIPTION:
An unassuming, plain and simple dram glass with an ogee bowl above a plain stem all standing on a thick, plain firing foot.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 4 inches;
Bowl diameter 1⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
There is a small seed in the bowl that can be seen at 7 o’clock in all the pictures showing the bowl and a row of enclosed air bubbles in the foot. These are manufacturing faults and quite normal for glass of this period. The glass is in fine condition showing the usual patterns of wear to the foot and bowl rims.

DESCRIPTION:
A solid “fit-for-purpose” antique wine goblet made of good quality English lead glass with ovoid bowl wheel engraved with a fruiting vine and a dove above a plain stem standing on a plain conical foot with broken pontil mark.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6⅜ inches;
Bowl diameter 3½ inches;
Foot diameter 3⅝ inches.

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with a very few light, inconsequential scratches to the outside of the bowl and the other normal wear to the foot and bowl rims.

NOTES:
This simple glass is described as “fit-for-purpose” because it is one of only a few types of 18th century glasses that can be used in the modern context of wine drinking: it is a good size with an incurved bowl which helps trap the bouquet of a wine, it sits very comfortably in the hand and its cost will not be too inhibiting.

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.
