Engraved, French, six-sided pedestal stem wine glass

Stock Number: 3570

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, Continental (probably French), engraved, pedestal stem wine glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1760.  An almost identical glass with the same decoration but with longer fluting to the bowl can be seen in Jacqueline Belanger's "Verre d'usage et de prestige; France 1500-1800" on page 486.
The glass is in excellent 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 200+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl.  
The glass has a funnel-shaped bowl measuring 6.8 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is engraved with swags and tails and has a ring of lens cuts to the lower third.  It sits on a six-sided pedestal stem.  The stem leads to a conical and folded foot that measures 6.3 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 14.6 cm (5.8 inches) in height and weighs just 86 gm.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.
