Fluted, ovoid bowl dram glass

Stock Number: 1153

This is what we believe to be an English, plain stem dram glass 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 commensurate with 200+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl.

The glass has an ovoid bowl measuring 4.1 cm (1.6 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is fluted to near the rim and sits on a short plain and a thick, conical "firing" foot which measures 5.4 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter.  The glass itself is a diminutive 8.2 cm (3.3 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  

It is made from English lead metal.
