Guest Book
An unusual, fairly small, light baluster goblet whose design and configuration suggests a Newcastle origin. The round funnel bowl, with its subtle, slightly waisted and flared profile, is typical of this region’s glasses. The unusual feature is that the bowl is honeycomb moulded to the lower half. The stem is also typical of Newcastle production. There is a half cushion knop supporting the bowl below which there is another half knop above an inverted baluster knop containing an elongated tear extending to the lower plain section of the stem which in turn stands on a plain conical foot.

Height 6⅜ inches;
Bowl diameter 3 inches;
Foot diameter 3¼ inches.

In very good condition with light wear to the bowl and foot rims.
