Georgian Facet Stem Wine Glass Goblet - George III c1780 English Lead & Etched (Code 2171)
A late 18th century George III period English drinking glass. It is the rare goblet form of the facet stem series of glasses and it dates around 1780. It is produced in lead glass and has a copper wheel cut 'egg and dart' pattern around the rim. The stem is the diamond cut form with the top cut extended into the bowl base to produce a petal shape. The pontil has been left rough snapped to the underside of the foot which is usual for this time period. The foot is of conical shape which shows nicely in the images. Goblets of this form are scarce and also particularly desirable as they are large enough to use today should you wish to do so.
Very good for period, bowl with very few impurities or scratches. Some minor mineral speckles and a blip of glass adhered to the underside of the foot from production.
Height: 15.7 cm ( 6 1/8 inch )
Width: 8.9 cm ( 3 1/2 inch ) across bowl
Weight: 298 grams (before packing)
