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.

Height 6½ inches;

Foot diameter 2⅝ inches.

CONDITION:
A refined antique wine glass made of high quality greyish lead metal showing firm striation and tooling marks to bowl and foot. The glass is in good condition with no signs of restoration or damage. Normal patterns of wear for the age of the glass.
