Wrythen petal-flute moulded jelly glass

Stock Number: 4964i

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, wrythen-petal flute moulded jelly glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1760.   
 
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 funnel-shaped bowl with an everted rim measuring 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter.  The bowl is wrythen petal-flute moulded to the lower half and sits on a small knop and a conical foot which measures 5.3 cm (2.1 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 9.7 (3.9 inches) in height.    There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  There is an antique dealer's label to the bottom of the foot saying "Jelly, c1760, £15.00".
 
It weighs 88 g. (~ 3 oz.).
