Plain bowl jelly glass, conical foot

Stock Number: 4765

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, jelly glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1770.   
 
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 some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has a trumpet-shaped plain bowl measuring 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on a conical foot which also measures 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.  The feet of dessert glasses were often made smaller than the bowls to facilitate easy lifting off a crowded table or tazza.  The glass itself is 9.8 cm (3.9 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.
