Mixed twist wine glass, four collars

Stock Number: 3882

This is what we believe to be a scarce, Georgian, mixed twist wine flute or toasting glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1760.   
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 trumpet-shaped bowl measuring 6.2 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on four collars and a mixed twist stem consisting of two "mercury" air tapes wound around a central opaque gauze.   The stem leads to a conical foot that measures 7.2 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 18.8 cm (7.5 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   There are two collectors' stickers to the bottom of the foot, one being for the Paul Kettle collection. 
It is made from English lead metal.
Provenance: The Paul Kettle collection.
