Honeycomb-moulded monteith or bonnet glass

Stock Number: 4058

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, bonnet or monteith glass dating from the end of the 18th century, c1780.  
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with 200+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
The glass has a double ogee shaped bowl measuring 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is moulded with a honeycomb pattern.  The bowl sits on a moulded cushion knop and a conical foot measuring 5.5 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 7 cm (2.8 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
It is made from lead glass weighing in at 128 g. (~ 4 1/2 oz.).
