Continental incised twist wine glass, folded foot

Stock Number: 4795

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, Continental, incised twist wine 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 over 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl.
The glass has a bell-shaped bowl measuring 6.8 cm (2.7 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is plain and sits on a widely-spaced incised twist stem.  The stem leads to a conical, folded foot which measures 7.2 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 15.7 cm (6.3 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, or any evidence of restoration.  There are some tiny inclusions and minute unburst small bubbles in the metal of the glass as is expected of soda glass of the period.  There is also an irregularly shaped scar on the surface of the foot near the stem where the tool used for incising the stem has slipped onto the foot at that point.  
Continental soda glass weighing in at only 85 g. (~ 3 oz.).
