Mid-18th Century Cordial Wine Glass Hand Blown Cotton Twist Stem, English C 1765

About the Item

This is a good hand blown, English, mid-Georgian, Cordial drinking glass with a double series opaque twist (DSOT) stem, dating from the middle of the 18th century, circa 1765. These glasses are very collectable, with cordial glasses being rarer than wine glasses of the same period. It is made from English lead glass which is relatively heavy and has a soft grey colour, with age related wear to both the rim of the bowl and to the foot rim as expected with over 200 years of use. The glass has the usual striations, inclusions and tiny bubbles you would expect to see in 18th century glass, which gives these glasses their unique charm. The glass has a small round funnel (RF) bowl and is typical of a cordial glass, having a proportionately smaller bowl than wine glasses of the same type. The bowl sits on a tall, thick, double series opaque or cotton twist stem consisting of a pair of 7-ply spiral bands wound outside a central lace twist. The stem leads to a good wide conical foot having a rough snapped off pontil mark to the underside. There are no chips, cracks or any evidence of restoration. Dimensions: Bowl rim diameter: 1.9 inches Foot diameter: 2.82 inches Height: 6.15 inches The glass has a good ring to it when tapped with a finger.
