Comments

It may just be an age thing but this glass stands out in my eyes. 

On first glance, it is the size and form of a pretty standard Regency wine or port glass...however, with a keener eye, the overall form has a few features that give it that stand out. 

Although the bowl is larger than you would expect from a later regency wine, it is the thick slice cut stem and lack of 'support' join at the base of that stem that catches the eye.

Almost all 19th-century drinking glasses have that support join...the feet get smaller in this period and it gives the glass that little extra strength and support. The slice cutting on the bowl is offset to that on the stem...you often see it on later glasses where the cutting starts at the base of the bowl and flows down the stem as one continuous cut. 

So 1800-1805 is a pretty good date for this glass.
