Guest Book
A dainty light baluster wine glass with waisted bell bowl above a baluster stem composed of a three part group of a collar, cushion knop and flattened knop supported on a true baluster knop and basal knop all standing on a conical folded foot with broken pontil mark. This charming glass is somewhere on the contentious cusp between baluster and balustroid. One very similar to this example is illustrated in Bickerton p.85 pl.132 in the baluster section.

Height: 6⅜ inches;
Bowl diameter: 2½ inches;
Foot diameter: 2¾ inches.

Please note the small inclusions and enclosed bubbles clearly visible on englargement 2 which are usual in glasses produced at this time. The glass is in excellent, original condition with light wear to the bowl and foot rims.
