Baluster wine glass

Stock Number: 3264

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, baluster wine glass dating from the beginning of the 18th century, c1730.   

The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot commensurate with over 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
The glass has a bell-shaped bowl measuring 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on a cushion knop and an inverted baluster stem, containing an air tear and which ends in another, larger cushion knop.  The stem leads to a conical, folded foot which measures 7.4 cm (3 inches) in diameter.  The glass itself is 16.8 (6.7 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.  

It is made from English lead glass.  A well-made and substantial baluster wine glass weighing in at 243 gm.
