A beautiful and profusely engraved air twist Georgian drinking glass, the bell bowl depicting a woman holding a branch and a cornucopia, with packages and maritime instruments cascading from it, the figure flanked by trees. The two line inscription below the rim "devrede stort op aarde weer, de koopman schap en konsten neer" translates as "When peace is upon the earth commerce and the arts will blossom." The stem contains a multiple-spiral air twist and has a medial swelled knop. The foot is of the conical type, with a rough pontil.

Lead metal, with excellent color, striations, and tool marks. Wonderful condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, or restoration. The height of the glass is 6 3/4", with a bowl diameter of 2 7/8" and a foot diameter of 2 7/8".
