George III engraved rummer or plain stem goblet

Stock Number: 3135c

This is what we believe to be a copper-wheel engraved, Georgian, rummer glass or plain stem goblet dating from the late 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 some 150 years of use.  The bowl is nicely striated as is the foot.

The glass has a bucket-shaped bowl measuring 8 cm (3.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is engraved with the letters "BB" or "RR" on one side of the glass within a simple cartouche and with a flower sprig on the reverse.  The bowl sits on a plain stem with a basal cushion knop.   The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter and carries a rough pontil mark.  The glass is 13 cm (5.2 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  

It is made from English lead metal.  A good, very early rummer, perfect for a good serving of robust red wine.
