DESCRIPTION:
This classic heavy baluster has a deep based round funnel bowl supported on a rare cushioned knop at shoulder with a tear continuing down to a basal knop all standing on a domed and folded foot.

Few glasses better fit the epithet ‘heavy’ baluster as well as this example which weighs very nearly 10oz (280g). When you pick this glass up for the first time you will be surprised by how heavy it feels in the hand. about double the of a similarly sized balustroid glass. However, despite its solidity, it is beautifully made with good proportions out of lovely greyish metal.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 5⅝ inches;
Bowl diameter 2¼ inches;
Foot diameter 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
No condition issues to report.

PROVENANCE:
The glass comes from the Karl-J.E. Liebetrau collection sold at Dr. Fischer 18 March 2017. An almost identical glass is illustrated in Glass Notes Collected and Compiled by Arthur Churchill Ltd, No. 14, December 1954, p36, illustration V. A. ii. c and is described on page 44. The checklist on 35 states that within the baluster glass section cushioned knops make up 2.3% of this category of glasses, only in second place of rarity to balusters with cylinder knops.

Unusual,good, clean glass with greyish tone to the glass. It has an elongated bell bowl supported on a plain teared stem section leading to a large and confident beaded ball knop standing on a plain conical foot.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6¾ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅛ inches;
Foot diameter 3 inches.

CONDITION:
In very good condition with a very few small inclusions; normal for a glass of this type and period of manufacture. No evidence of restoration.

DESCRIPTION:
A Georgian wine glass constructed of lovely clear lead metal with a plain round funnel bowl, above a small angular knop, above a combined half shoulder and inverted baluster knop, descending to a double series opaque twist made up of a pair of spiral tapes outside a spiral gauze, with basal knop supported on plain conical foot. This style of glass is rarely seen without Dutch wheel engraving… for an example see on the back of the dust jacket of LM Bickerton’s “Antique English Glass”. We are offering a good example of the undecorated version, where it is easier to appreciate the tasteful lines and good proportions of the glass without the distraction of engraving.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6⅝ inches;
Bowl diameter 2¾ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
In good original condition with no restoration, with the normal age related wear to the bowl and foot rims. The opaque twist changes colour under different lighting conditions. Against a black background the threads have a slight bluish colour whereas when lit from behind they appear rich orange colour in others. (See enlargement 4).

An elegant glass with some rare and unusual features. The bowl is a well defined ogee type, with moulded fluting and a wheel engraved formal foliate border above a triple series mixed twist composed of an opaque spiral tape inside a spiral air gauze alternating with an opaque spiral tape standing on a plain conical foot.

DESCRIPTION
A superb example of a Dutch engraved armorial wine goblet possibly by Jacob Sang, but, more likely, to be one of the Sang circle of copper wheel engravers working in Amsterdam in the mid-eighteenth century. The glass depicts the royal coat of arms of Princess Anne of Hanover, (1709-59), daughter of King George II of Great Britain. The superb engraving is on a fine light baluster stem goblet with a round funnel bowl supported on an angular shoulder knop above a beaded inverted baluster knop leading to a basal knop standing on a large plain conical foot. The glass is beautifully made out of the best lead metal by a skilled craftsman with a good eye for proportion and balance. The quality, style and craftsmaniship of the engraving is in keeping with that of Jacob Sang but not all the details are consistant with his work. The conclusion can be drawn that either the glass was worked on by more than one engraver or that it was from Sang’s workshop. See similar work by Jacob Sang in the Rjiksmuseum illustrated in volume II plates 218 and 209.

DIMENSIONS
Height: 7½ inches
Bowl diameter: 3¼ inches

The glass is in first class condition with light wear to the bowl and foot rims.

DESCRIPTION:
English made "Friendship" goblet with ogee bowl with Dutch stipple engraving of two putti sharing a glass of wine, accompanied by a dog underneath the inscription VRIENDSCHAP. The bowl is supported on a hexagonal facet cut stem standing on a plain conical foot.

DIMENSIONS:
Height - 7⅛ inches;
Bowl diameter - 2¾ inches;
Foot diameter - 3¼ inches.

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with a very few small inclusions. The bowl rim has a shear mark indicating that the bowl is original and intact. The foot rim also has a tiny raised inclusion confirming its original condition. There are no signs of restoration to any other parts of the glass.

NOTES:
Provenence: Ex Christie's, Amsterdam, September 1985, lot 78; September 1985 to August 2014 a collector from County Antrim, Ireland. Ex Dreweatte's August 2014 and then with Athelny Antiques to present.

Attribution: The glass has previously been attributed to David Wolff. However there are some elements of the design and execution which suggests that the artist may well have been the engraver known as Alias. The long eared dog is a motif commonly used by him. The use of line engraving alongside stipple engraving is also characteristic of his work as is are the more characterful faces on the putti.

DESCRIPTION:
A rare and unusual toastmaster glass with deceptive waisted bucket bowl above a single series opaque twist stem formed with an outlined lace twist standing on a plain conical foot.

DIMENSIONS:
Height - 6¼ inches;
Bowl diameter - 2 inches;
Foot diameter - 2¾ inches.

CONDITION:
Unsurprisingly, the relatively inaccessible bottom of the bowl has a hint of bloom. This bloom is disturbed with light scratch marks which probably result from cleaning attempts. A very rare glass offered in excellent condition.

NOTES:
Toastmaster glasses were, of course, designed to give the impression that the celebrant was keeping pace with the guests drinking toasts. This glass illustrates an extreme of the deceptive bowl, holding less than a third of a standard comparable bowl (see image 6) thus allowing the celebrant to remain vertical and comprehensible long after the revelers had fallen by the wayside. Bickerton, Arthur Churchill's and Barrington Haynes provide no references to a glass with this rare configuration.
