Small naively engraved tumbler

Stock Number: 4775

This is what we believe to be a small, late Georgian, hand-blown, naively engraved glass tumbler dating from the end of the 18th century, c1790. 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200+ years of use.  
The glass has a bucket-shaped bowl measuring 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is diamond-point engraved with the initils "JF" in fancy italic script.   The tumbler has a thick base which measures 4.3 cm (1.7 inches) in diameter and carries a rough pontil mark that bears the iron residue from an iron pontil.  The glass is 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
English lead glass weighing in at 147 g. (~ 5 1/4 oz.).
