Mead glass, plain stem

Stock Number: 4404

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, plain stem mead glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750.  
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 cup bowl measuring 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on a plain stem and a conical foot that measures 7.2 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 14.3 cm (5.7 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   There is a small piece of white frit towards the edge of the foot.  There is a collector's sticker to the base of the foot.
