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.

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

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