Small tazza with folded, pedestal foot

Stock Number: 4817

his is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, small, low tazza with a folded pedestal foot dating from the early 18th century, c1735.  Keith Kelsall shows a number of examples in his book "The Footed Salver".
The tazza is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot commensurate with 250+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark at the apex of the foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl. 
The tazza has a shallow bowl measuring 22 cm (8.8 inches) in diameter at the folded under rim.  The bowl sits on a pedestal, folded foot which measures 9.7 cm (3.9 inches) in diameter.  The tazza is only 3.7 cm (1.5 inches) in height.  There is some very light scratching to the surface and a large, unburst bubble in the metal of the foot.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.   
It is made from English lead metal and has a very light green tinge, almost certainly resulting from some tiny piece of iron getting into the pot.
