Georgian flower-engraved multi spiral air twist wine glass

Stock Number: 5077

This is what we believe to be a flower-engraved, Georgian, multi spiral 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 base of the foot.
 
The glass has a rounded funnel-shaped bowl measuring 5.4 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a sprig of three flowers and foliage and sits on a multi spiral air twist stem..  The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter.   The glass is 15.8 cm  (6.3 inches) in height.   It weighs 140 g. (~ 5 oz.).   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any other obvious signs of restoration.   There is a tiny white inclusion in the metal of the foot from when it was manufactured.
 
English lead glass.
