Bohemian cut glass goblet and cover

Stock Number: 4823

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, Bohemian, cut glass goblet and cover dating from the turn of the18th/19th centuries, c1800.  
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means of course that it shows 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. It has a polished out pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has a large rounded-funnel shaped bowl measuring 8.5 cm (3.4 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is beautifully cut with bands of olives, diamonds, prism cuts and gothic panels and sits on a merise and a nine-sided inverted baluster stem containing a ruby and adventurine twist.  The stem ends in a merise, a short piece of plain stem and a basal collar and leads to a large petal-flute cut conical foot which measures 10.5 cm (4.2 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 19.8 cm (7.9 inches) in height without the cover and 26 cm (10.4 inches) high with the cover. 
 
The cover is sympathetically cut and is engraved to the edge with a formal border.  It may not be the original but is a good fit and looks right.  It ends in a cut finial.
 
There are some minute chips to the inside of the bowl rim and the outside of the cover rim where they have abraded against each other.  There are no other chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.   
 
It weighs in at 450 g. (~ 1 lb 2 oz.).
