Pair of late Georgian cut glass sweetmeats

Stock Number: 5036

This is what we believe to be a pair of Georgian pedestal stem sweetmeat glasses with serrated rims dating from the end of the 18th century, c1780.  
The glasses are in excellent condition for their age.  This means, of course, that they show age related wear and tear to the rims of the feet and the rims of the bowls consistent with some 200+ years of use. 
The glasses have ovoid-shaped bowls with everted rims measuring 9.3 cm (3.7 inches) in diameter.  The rims are tooth cut and the bowls are decorated with three cut stars to the upper halves and are petal flute cut to the lower halves.  The bowls sit on a single merise and eight-sided pedestal stems which end in double collars.  The stems lead to domed feet which measure 8.7 cm (3.5 inches) in diameter.  The glasses are 16.8 cm (6.7 inches) in height.  Each glass weighs 390 g. (~ 14 oz.).   Dimensions vary slightly from glass to glass.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.  
English lead glass.
