Saxon, olive cut, oval beaker

Stock Number: 3158

This is what we believe to be a Georgian (George III), German beaker dating from the second half of the 18th century, c1780, and made in Saxony.

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 200+ years of use.  

The glass has a bucket-shaped bowl which is oval in cross-section, measuring 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in length at the bowl rim and 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in width.  The glass tapers slightly as it descends towards the base.   The bowl is cut with eleven lateral rows of cut olives and a basal row of finger fluting.  The glass is 8.5 cm (3.6 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.         

An interesting and unusual specimen.
