Crizzled, small, French balustroid dram glass

Stock Number: 4262

This is what we believe to be a small French, Georgian/Louis XV, balustroid wine glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1750.
The glass is in good condition for its age.  It shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot and the rim of the bowl consistent with 250+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.  
The glass has a rounded bucket-shaped bowl measuring 4.7 cm (1.8 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is plain and sits on an inverted baluster stem.  The stem leads to a conical, folded foot which measures 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 11 cm (4.4 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  The glass is, however, crizzled, which the French call "pink disease", and the glass does indeed have a pink tinge to it.
The line on the stem is a tool mark and not a join.
French soda glass.
Provenance: The D.S. Neave collection, Marly-le-Roi, France.
