Jacobite-engraved multi spiral air twist wine glass

Stock Number: 4738

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, Jacobite-engraved multi spiral air twist stem wine glass, dating from the mid 18th century, c1750.  
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the bowl and the rim of the foot consistent with some 250+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The two piece glass has a trumpet-shaped bowl measuring 6.4 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a seven-petal open Jacobite rose and two rose buds on a single stem. The seven petal rose is unusual, six and eight petal roses being more common, but the engraving appears to be contemporaneous with the glass.  The bowl sits on a multi spiral air twist stem and a conical foot that measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 16.3 cm (6.5 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   There are some tiny unburst air bubbles near the rim of the glass.  
 
English lead glass.
