An elegant lead metal wine glass of balustroid type, having a round funnel bowl over a shoulder angular knop over a straight stem with an extended tear and basal knop. High conical folded foot. A well-fashioned and tall example of this form.

Overall excellent condition, with no restoration or cracks. Wonderful color, striations, and tooling marks. There is a small potstone inclusion near the rim (showing as the white spot in the main photo), and an in-the-making sliver slice under the foot, just off the pontil mark. Neither of these are uncommon, nor do they detract substantially from the value. The height of the glass is 6 3/4", the bowl diameter is 1 7/8", and the foot diameter is 2 1/2".
