Georgian wrythen-moulded dram glass

Stock Number: 4963f

This is what we believe to be a Georgian hand-blown wrythen-moulded dram glass dating from the end of the 18th century, c1790.   
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with more than 200 years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the base of the foot.
The glass has a funnel-shaped bowl measuring 4.4 cm (1.7 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is wrythen-moulded and sits on an extruded wrythened stem.  The stem leads to a thick, conical foot which measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 9 cm (3.6 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any obvious signs of restoration.  There are two small unburst bubbles and a small black inclusion in the metal of the foot, all dating from manufacture.
English lead glass weighing in at 112 g. ( ~ 4 oz.)
