Technical Description 

An 18th century plain stem wine glass. An ogee bowl engraved with a wild rose and a Jaybird. Plain stem above conical folded foot.

An excellent example of an early plain stem wine of possible Jacobite Significance. The Jay is purported to be a symbol of the usurpation of the Stuart Kings, the wild rose referring to fertility being restored again and the white rose of the Stuarts. The white rose was also worn to celebrate the ‘Old Pretenders’ birthday (James Francis Edward Stuart, son of James II of England)
