Georgian Antique English Lead Glass Baluster Stem Large Tazza c1760 (Code 0517)
A Georgian large glass tazza with a hollow ribbed baluster stem. It dates to the mid 18th century around 1860 and is an English lead glass example. It has quite a wide stand and was probably the base tazza (they usually came in graduated sets). Tazzas like this were used to display/serve jelly glasses with desserts. It is of course hand made and has a rough snapped pontil, the foot is folded (upwards in this example) and there is a lip around the stand. They were expensive items in their day, and can of course be used today with care.
Some contamination trapped inside the stem from blowing, resulting in a bloom. A bruise to the rim, shown in close up for you. Minor period wear. Normal tiny air bubbles and mineral inclusions in the glass from production as expected for this period.
