Vine engraved & knopped Jacobite facet cut stem wine glass

Stock Number: 4439

This is what we believe to be a Georgian  facet cut stem wine glass, of probable Jacobite significance, dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.   Such glasses commemorated the Jacobite rebellion, showing the allegiance of their owners by the feet being cut into the shape of the six-petal Jacobite rose.
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with 200+ years of use.  It has a polished out pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has an ovoid bowl measuring 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl is engraved with a trailing, fruiting vine under the rim, the grapes having been polished.  The lower half of the bowl is cut with arches and sits on a hexagonal facet cut stem.  The stem leads to a rose shaped conical foot which measures 7.3 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter.  The glass is 15 cm (6 inches) in height.   It weighs 148 g. (~ 5 1/4 oz.).    There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any obvious signs of restoration.   
 
English lead glass.  One of a set of three we bought.
