Baluster gin glass

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, baluster, small gin or cordial glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750.  

The glass is in good condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.   

The glass has a small, bell bowl measuring 4.4 cm (1.7 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The plain stem has one shoulder and one basal cushion knop.  The stem leads to a conical, folded foot which measures 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter.  The glass itself is 11.3 cm (4.5 inches) in height.  There is what appears to be a scratch in...

Baluster oil lamp with original burner

This is what we believe to be a rare, Georgian, hand-blown, glass oil lamp dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.  The rarity arises due to it still having its original brass burner.

The lamp is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with approximately 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
