A spectacular and huge English baluster goblet with a mushroom knop. The thistle-shaped bowl, with solid base, sits atop a short section over a wide (2 1/4 inches) mushroom knop with a tear extending into a basal ball knop above a folded foot.

This work of beautiful craftsmanship is distinguished by its rarity, mammoth size, and pristine condition. It stands 9 1/8" tall, has a bowl diameter of 4 1/4", a foot diameter of 4 3/8", and weighs an astonishing 1 pound 14 ounces. The metal is a wonderful gray color, with good striations and tooling marks. There are no chips, flakes, restoration, or problems of any kind.

An essentially identical glass, but of a smaller size, 7 7/8", and of less elegant and well-formed proportion, sold at the important Ron Thomas sale on June 4, 2008, for approximately $16,800. A picture of that glass is shown as the sixth photo.
