Wrythen-moulded jelly glass, conical foot

Stock Number: 4964h

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, wrythen-moulded jelly glass dating from the end of the 18th century, c1790.   
 
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 230 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is black showing that an iron pontil was used.
 
The glass has a bell-shaped bowl with an everted rim measuring 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter.  The bowl sits on a small annular knop and a conical foot which measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.  The feet of jelly glasses were often made smaller than the bowls to ease the lifting from crowded tables or tazzas.  The glass is 9.6 (3.8 inches) in height.    There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
 
It weighs 108 g. (~ 3 3/4 oz.).
