Balustroid wine glass, bell bowl, folded foot

Stock Number: 4759

This is what we believe to be a tall, Georgian, English, balustroid wine glass dating from the early to mid 18th century, c1740.  
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated.
The glass has a bell-shaped bowl measuring 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is plain and sits on an inverted baluster stem, and a basal cushion knop, both knops containing small air tears.  The bowl sits on a conical, folded foot which measures 7.7 cm (3.1 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 17 cm (6.8 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   There is a collector's sticker to the base of the foot.
It is made from English lead metal, weighing in at 155 g. (~ 5 1/2 oz.).
