Georgian Wine Drinking Glass Hand Blown Engraved with Star and Darts, circa 1790

$401.87

About

This is a good English, hand blown George 111rd period, engraved wine drinking glass, from the late 18th century, circa 1790. It is individually hand blown, from lead glass and as such is unique, with no two glasses being identical. 18th century lead glass is characterised by its soft grey color, its fairly heavy weight and the imperfections that occur naturally within the glass as part of the hand-blowing process. This glass has a drawn round funnel bowl which has been well engraved with a continuous band of stars and darts below the rim. The base of the bowl has been drawn to form a short plain solid stem, which sits on a good conical foot with a snapped-off pontil to the underside. For a glass with similar engraving please see pages 248 of the Classic work by L M Bickerton, 18th century English drinking glasses, published by The Antique Collectors club. Dimensions in inches: Foot diameter 2.5 Rim diameter 2.25 Height 4.5 The glass has a nice ring to it when tapped with a finger.
