An extremely fine NLB Newcastle light baluster wine glass with superb engraving of two clasped hands. Jacob Sang often used such a motif and the engraving is definitely of Sang quality, though, being unsigned, it is impossible to definitely attribute it to him. The pointed round funnel bowl sits atop a stem with a shoulder knop and a tear-filled medial inverted baluster knop. A basal knop is above the conical foot, which has a rough, snapped pontil.
In excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or restoration, the glass is 6 3/4 inches tall, with a bowl diameter of 2 11/16 inches and a foot diameter of 2 13/16 inches.
