A Georgian Plain Stem Wine Glass with Folded Foot - Antique circa 1750 (Code 1852)
A mid 18th century George II period wine glass. It is of plain stem form and is produced in two parts with the stem and bowl drawn from the same gather of glass.
The glass is of English lead glass composition and dates around 1750. The foot is neatly folded and of conical form, the pontil is rough snapped as you would expect for this period. The lower point of the stem has a slight swelling as if the glass blower was going to form a knop but never quite completed it.
The bowl is of waisted bell form and there is a thickened section at the base of the bowl. The design with the slight basal swelling is probably transitional from balustroid to plain stem, due to the lack of definition in the 'knop' I have catalogued it as plain stem.
Some scratching to the bowl interior, probably from careless cleaning. Minor mineral and air bubble inclusions typical for the period. Minor rim roughness through normal use. Good tooling and striation lines. Slight rock when set on dead flat surface.
Height 15.3 cms (6 inches)
Width 6.1 cms (2.4 inches) at rim
Weight 114 grams (before packing).
