Georgian Period English Drinking Glass with DSOT Opaque Twist Stem c1760 (Code 1246)
An English lead type drinking glass dating to the mid 18th century. It has a double series opaque twist stem consisting of a central cork screw with four outer tapes. The bowl is of ogee form with optic ribs over the lower section. The bowl is unusually large for the period, perhaps 3 to 4 times the capacity of the average example. It is also a little taller than usual and the foot is scaled up accordingly and is deeply conical with a rough snapped pontil. The date range would be around 1760-5.
Light period wear with some scratches inside the bowl through over-zealous cleaning. Minor impurities. A nice example with the much larger than usual bowl.
