Pan-top syllabub glass with tulip engraving

Stock Number: 4728

This is what we believe to be a scarce English, Georgian, pan-top, tulip-engraved syllabub glass dating from the end of the 18th century, c1780.   
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 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
The glass has a pan-top bowl measuring 7.2 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved under the rim with a band of tulips and sits on an annular knop and a conical foot which measures 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.   The feet of dessert glasses were usually made smaller than the bowl to facilitate easy lifting from a crowded platter or tazza.  The glass is 10.7 cm (4.3 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  Collector's sticker to the base of the foot.
Provenance: The Chris Heggadon collection.
