Georgian cup bowl rummer with lemon squeezer foot

Stock Number: 5086e

This is what we believe to be a late Georgian rummer glass dating from the end of the 18th century, c1790. 
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 over 200 years of use.  The bowl is nicely striated.
The glass has a cup-shaped bowl measuring 8.8 cm (3.5 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is plain and sits on a capstan stem.   The stem leads to a lemon-squeezer foot which measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) square.  The glass is 11.2 cm (4.5 inches) in height.  There is some light chipping to the edges and corners of the foot, which is always the case with this form.  There is also a shallow bruise to the bottom of one corner 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 bowl.
It is made from Anglo/Irish lead metal weighing in at 263 g. (~ 9 1/4 oz.).  A good early rummer.
