A very satisfactory wine glass with an ogee bowl engraved with a Chinoiserie scene (a decorative device then at the tail-end of its 18th century fashion) with a parasolled figure walking through a fanciful landscape replete with pagodas. The base of the bowl is bridge cut leading down to a diamond cut facet stem standing on a plain conical foot.
Height 6 inches;
Bowl diameter 2 inches;
Foot diameter 2¾ inches.
A fine example of the facet cut stem wine glass in excellent original, unrestored condition with the expected age related wear to the foot and bowl rim.
