This is a magnificent heavy baluster wine glass with a powerful presence. From its confident, slightly incurved bucket bowl (holding 2 pints) to its deep folded foot this glass oozes masculinity. There is no denying its blokey/macho style. Bucket bowls are rarely found in heavy baluster goblets and even less so in 'giant' goblets. (This term, 'giant', was used by E Barrington Haynes to describe glasses over ten inches tall.) The simple stem has a teared inverted baluster knop at the shoulder. The glass is impressively heavy, weighing just under 2lb 11oz (1.2kg). This rugged glass was made with fairly heavy tooling marks between the bowl and stem and stem to foot. The bowl does not sit quite straight on the stem. It measures 1.1° off horizontal and is hardly noticable and is quite in keeping with the general character of this impressive glass.
Very good condition with a few light scratches to the outside of the bowl as would be expected on a glass of this age. There is fairly light wear to the bowl and bearing surface of the foot.
