Engraved, opaque twist cordial glass

Stock Number: 3420

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, engraved, double series opaque twist stem cordial glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1765.   
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with over 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has a small bucket-shaped bowl measuring 4.5 cm (1.8 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a sprig of flowers and leaves and sits on a double series opaque twist stem consisting of four enamel strands wound around a central gauze.   The stem leads to a conical foot that measures 7.4 cm (3 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 16.5 cm (6.6 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.  There is a collector's sticker to the base, dated 1966.
 
It is made from high quality English lead glass.  
 
Provenance: The Christopher Hogwood collection.
