Bucrania and patterae engraved ale glass

Stock Number: 4410

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, engraved facet stem ale glass dating from the late 18th century, c1790, possibly from the atelier of James Giles.  
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the bowl and the rim of the foot consistent with some 200+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has an extended rounded funnel bowl measuring 5.6 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a bucrania and patterae design within trailing vines in the same manner as that used by the James Giles' atelier.  The bowl sits on an extruded hexagonal facet cut stem and a conical foot that measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 16.8 cm (6.7 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.
