Hop and barley engraved tumbler

Stock Number: 4395

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, hand-blown, hop and barley engraved, glass tumbler dating from the mid 18th century, c1770. 
 
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 170 years of use.  
 
The glass has a bucket-shaped bowl measuring 7.6 cm (3 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is copper wheel engraved with a single hop and a pair of barley ears in saltire (crossed).   The bowl ends in a base which measures 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter and carries a rough pontil mark.  The glass is 9.7 cm (3.9 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
 
A lovely tumbler, perfect for use as a whisky glass.
