A superb and rare lead metal antique English Georgian period composite stem wine glass. The round funnel bowl is beautifully engraved with a wide band with a foliate and scroll motif. Directly below the bowl are two knops on a plain stem section, below which is a knopped double series opaque twist stem comprised of a central gauze surrounded by two heavy spiral threads. The conical foot has a rough snapped pontil.

The glass is 7 1/8" tall, with a bowl diameter of 3" and a foot diameter of 3 1/4". Wonderful color, striations, and tool marks. The condition is superb, with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
