Swag & tail engraved Georgian gin glass

Stock Number: 4910

This is what we believe to be a Georgian plain stem gin glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750.  
 
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 commensurate with 200+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has a funnel bowl measuring 5.6 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is engraved with a formal swag and tail border and sits on an extruded plain stem and a conical, folded foot that measures 6.3 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 11.3 cm (4.5 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  There are three small white inclusions in the metal of the bowl.
 
It is made from English lead metal.  It weighs 91 g. (~ 3 1/4 oz.).
