A rare form of composite stem Georgian knopped wine glass, the waisted bucket bowl engraved with fruiting vine border supported on a triple annulated collar above a single series air twist spiral gauze with a basal knop of two annulated rings plus a small proto-knop all standing on a plain conical foot. This glass is strikingly similar to the one illustrated in Bickerton’s "Drinking Glasses”, fig. 438 p. 162. This example has slightly more complex knopping in that the upper knop is triple rather than double annulated and the lower knop is double rather than single. The engraving closely resembles the Bickerton example as do the proportions of both glasses. Their similarity makes it not unreasonable to surmise that both glasses came from the same glass house and possibly from the same "chair".
Height 6½ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅜ inches;
Foot diameter just under 2⅞ inches.
The condition of the glass is excellent with the expected wear for antique glasses from this period.
