Flute moulded dwarf ale glass engraved with hunting slogan

Stock Number: 4613

This is what we believe to be a late Georgian, engraved dwarf ale glass of hunting significance dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, circa 1800.
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with over 200 years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl.  
 
The glass has an extended rounded funnel-shaped bowl measuring 6 cm (2.4 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl is engraved with the slogan "Success to stag hunting" and is petal-flute moulded to the lower half.  The bowl sits on a ribbed cushion knop, a small length of plain stem and a basal collar.  The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 6.3 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 12.3 cm (4.9 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.    There are two small inclusions in the metal of the bowl.  It weighs 116 g. (~ 4 oz.).
