Egg and dart engraved facet cut stem ale glass

Stock Number: 4949e

This is what we believe to be a late Georgian, engraved, facet cut stem ale glass dating from the turn of the 18th/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 200+ years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot which is nicely striated.
 
The glass has an extended rounded funnel-shaped bowl measuring 5.5 cm (2.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with an OXO/egg and dart pattern just under the rim and sits on an extruded hexagonal-cut stem and a conical foot which measures 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 15.3 cm (6.1 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration. 
 
It is made from lead metal weighing in at 164 g. (~ 5 3/4 oz.).
