Technical Description 

A rare 18th-century posset pot glass with a tapered bowl with twin handles and a swan-necked spout. The base features a rough pontil.

Posset was a warm drink of spiced milk curdled with wine or ale. You used the spout to suck the fluid (much like a straw) and a spoon for the solid residue.

A rare piece and only the 2nd example we have had.

Historical Relevance 

Hand-made around the time of the Boston Tea Party on the 16th of December 1773.
