Antique Plain Stem Engraved Wine Goblet c.1750
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 3˝ 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.
