Tulip-engraved plain stem ale or large gin glass

Stock Number: 4900

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, tulip-engraved, plain stem ale or large gin glass dating from the mid to late 18th century, c1760.  
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
The glass has a funnel bowl measuring 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is copper-wheel engraved with a band of stylised tulips.  The bowl sits on an extruded plain stem that leads to a conical foot which measures 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 14 cm (5.6 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any obvious signs of restoration.  There is a stencilled collector's number on the base of the foot.
English lead glass weighing in at 117 g. ( ~ 4 1/4 oz.)
