Flute-moulded double series air twist wine glass

Stock Number: 5011

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, flute-moulded, double series air twist wine glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750.  
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear 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 an ogee-shaped bowl measuring 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is moulded to the lower half with slightly wrythened flutes.  The bowl sits on a double series air twist stem consisting of four air cables would around a central, thick air cable.  The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7.2 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 14.4 cm  (5.7 inches) in height.   It weighs 128 g. (~ 4 1/2 oz.).   There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any obvious signs of restoration.   
 
English lead glass.
