Double series opaque twist wine flute

Stock Number: 4645

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, double series opaque twist wine glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1765.  
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 glass has a trumpet-shaped bowl measuring 6.2 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is plain and sits on a double series opaque twist stem consisting of seven spirally wound "cotton" enamel strands around a central twist of two enamel cords.  The stem leads to a conical foot that measures 8 cm (3.2 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 19.7 cm (7.9 inches) in height.   There is a small flake chip to the underside of the foot rim which appears to have been professionally partially filled in with clear resin.  It cannot be felt on the outside of the foot.  There are no other chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   There is a small unburst bubble in the metal of the foot dating from manufacture.  
English lead glass weighing 159 g. (~ 5 1/2 oz.).
