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