A very fine example of an English heavy baluster wine glass in immaculate condition the bell bowl with heavy, teared base supported on a heavy baluster stem comprised of a plain shoulder knop above a drop knop and teared true baluster knop with a tear leading into a basal knop all supported on a folded domed foot. The metal of this glass is exceptionally fine, and this gives the glass a real sparkle. A very similar glass can be seen in Bickerton plate 89 page 73.

Height 6⅜ inches;
Bowl diameter 2½ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅝ inches.

The glass seems to have had a very sheltered life and is in pristine condition with no blemishes, no restoration and only light wear to the foot.
