DESCRIPTION:
Jacobite wine glass, the bell bowl and multi-spiral airtwist stem made in one part with a weld between stem and foot weld. The bowl engraved with an open rose, a rosebud and five leaves; three to left and two to right all standing on a 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.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 2¼ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
In good condition with no restoration or damage. The foot has some of the typical manufacturing flaws in period glassware : A few small smuts along with an iron oxide stain and a couple of shell marks caused by the pontil being broken off a little too short leaving a couple of shell marks. (See pic. 6) Normal patterns of wear for the age of the glass.
