A superb and tall Newcastle light baluster (NLB) wine glass or goblet with marriage or anniversary significance. The flared bell bowl has a trapped tear in the deep bottom. The stem features a shoulder angular knop above a slim inverted baluster knop, then a plain stem section leading to a basal ball knop above a conical foot with rough, snapped pontil.

What makes this a marriage type glass is the superb Dutch engraving, which depicts a couple toasting each other. On the other side of the bowl is the saying "..T Glasie Van De Inclinatie," which translates as "The Cup of Affection." Beneath the saying are flowering plants.

The glass is in perfect condition, and is 7 3/8 inches tall, with both bowl and foot diameters of 3 3/8 inches.
