Georgian flange footed firing glass

Stock Number: 5153a

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, flange-footed firing glass dating from the mid 18th century, c1750. 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use.  
The glass has a funnel-shaped bowl measuring 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is plain and sits on a flanged firing foot which measures 5.7 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter and displays a rough pontil mark to the base.  The glass is 9.2 cm (3.7 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. 
It is made from English lead metal weighing in at 140 g. (~ 5 oz.).
