DESCRIPTION:
A rare and enigmatic lead crystal wine glass with tulip bowl engraved with printie swags and stars at the top and the lower half cut with 6 half stars interspersed with bridging cut facets join-ing up with the hexagon facet cutting of the stem which continues over what can only be de-scribed as a teared drop knop. Below this the cutting continues with a short section of vertical flutes all supported on a folded conical foot. Please note: the blue security code written on the foot rim has now been removed.

The enigma of this glass is that its shape is com-pletely characteristic of tulip bowl, drop knop, heavy baluster glasses from c.1710 (see exam-ples in pic 2) but the cutting style is distinctly c.1785 in style. Showing that a glass is "later en-graved/cut" is difficult prove… in this case there can be no doubt this example is an early glass probably decorated over 70 years after it was made.

Please note that the horizontal mark across the stem ( see pic 4) is not a repair to the glass but marks the weld point between the bottom of the thick based bowl and the stem proper. You can see where the weld point is in the other exam-ples shown.

DESCRIPTION:
An imposing wine glass with large capacity bucket with slightly tapered straight sided bowl above a double series opaque twist stem of a spiral gauze inside four spiral threads standing on a plain conical foot. Interestingly, the glass gives an historical window and a record so that we may appreciate how much skill is needed to make a glass of this size. The record is shown frozen in time by the sometimes laboured tooling marks on the bowl and foot and also the glass's slight misalignment.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 8¾ inches;
Bowl diameter 3⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 4₧ inches.
Capacity: Just over 1 imperial pint

CONDITION:
In good order with no damage. The inside of the bowl has been lightly polished to remove some cloudiness. Production issues are noted above. Enclosed air bubble near the base of the bowl (see pic.3)

DESCRIPTION:
A large barrel-shaped beaker engraved with a Tyne collier brig on one side and with the initials WIS on the. The brig is crisply engraved and is an accurate representation of this type of sailing vessel. These ships carried coal from the North East of England along the East Coast, mainly to London.

James Cook used colliers for his three voyages of discovery and the Bounty, infamous ship of mutiny fame, was also one. The decline of the Newcastle upon Tyne glass industry was hastened by the replacement of wooden hulled colliers with iron hulled ships which had ballast tanks that could be filled with water instead of the time wasting practice of picking up the sand ballast used by glass-making industry.

DIMENSIONS:
Height: 5⅛ inches;
Bowl rim diameter: 3⅜ inches;
Overall diameter: approx. 4 inches;
Capacity: 1 Imperial pint

CONDITION:
In excellent condition with no restoration or damage. A very tiny seed in the base of the glass. (See enlargement 6 at 8 o'clock). Minimal wear.

DESCRIPTION:
Jacobite wine glass made in the Newcastle light baluster stem style, the round funnel bowl engraved with an open rose, a rosebud and five leaves; three to left and two to right. Below the bowl is an elaborate Newcastle style stem composed of a half knop supporting the bowl continuing to a drop knop in turn supported on a cushion knop, above a beaded proper knop, the beading continuing into an inverted baluster knop and finally to a basal knop punctuating the transition from stem to plain conical foot.

The style of engraving looks to be in the style of Engraver A as identified by Geffrey Seddon in his book on Jacobite glass (1995, p140). The overall configuration of the engraved leaves fits Seddon's description on p95.

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.

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).
