A generous wine or small goblet with a round funnel bowl above a “mercury” air twist pair of corkscrews standing on a plain conical foot with a ground pontil mark (seen as an added touch of refinement at the time).

Height 7 inches;
Bowl diameter 3 inches;
Foot diameter 3¼ inches.

This fine glass is in excellent original condition with the usual air bubbles and inclusions found in glasses made at this time (see photographs). The foot rim has a reassuring tooling mark to the edge.
