Continental knopped multi spiral air twist wine glass

Stock Number: 4748

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, Continental, multi spiral air twist stem wine glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1760.  
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means of cours,e that it shows 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 which is nicely striated.
 
The glass has a bell-shaped bowl measuring 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is plain and sits on a multi spiral air twist stem where the twist extends up into the base of the bowl.  The stem has a short straight section below which is an inverted baluster.  The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 17.5 cm (7 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   It weighs in at 138 g. (~ 5 oz.).
