PLAIN STEM GLASSES

The classic simplicity of the 18th century Georgian plain stem wine glasses has made them a favourite of many a collector and particularly of dealers who appreciate their simplicity.  Some would argue that no drinking glass has ever been as beautiful or as tactile as the eighteenth century trumpet bowled wine glass.  Plain stem wine glasses were made either in two parts or three, the foot always being made separately.  Trumpet bowl wine glasses were nearly always made in two parts with the stem and the bowl being made in a seamless whole.  Glasses such as the one on the right which features a rounded funnel bowl were most often made in three parts, the stem and the bowl being made separately.  The glass on the right has a folded, conical foot.
