An 18th century dram glass with a drawn trumpet bowl and multi spiral air twist stem. The bowl has been engraved with a flower sprig on one side and the initials RJ on the other. Conical foot with a snapped pontil. Drawn trumpet wine glasses in this form are relatively common, whereas a dram glass is rather rare and you don't find them very often. This is a fine example.
Hand-blown around the time France declared war on Britain during The War of the Austrian Succession in 1744.
