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.
