Pair of tulip-engraved funnel bowl dram glasses

Stock Number: 4769

This is what we believe to be a pair of Georgian, English, tulip-engraved dram glasses dating from the late 18th century, c1770.  
 
The glasses are in excellent condition for their age.  This means, of course, that they show age related wear and tear to both the rims of the bowls and to the rims of the feet consistent with some 200+ years of use. They have rough pontil marks on the feet which are nicely striated.
 
The glasses have funnel-shaped bowls measuring 6.2 cm (2.5 inches) and 5.6 cm (2.2 inches) respectively in diameter at the rims.  The bowls are engraved with a formal band of tulips under the rims and sit on extruded short, plain stems, and conical feet which measure 6.4 cm (2.5 inches) and  6.3 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter respectively.  The glasses are 12 cm (4.8 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.     
 
They are made from English lead metal, weighing in at 126 g. (~ 4 1/2 oz.) and 96 g. (~ 3 1/2 oz.) respectively.   Weights and measurements vary from glass to glass as is expected from hand-blown glassware but they came to us as a pair.
