Technical Description 

An 18th-century wine glass with a round funnel bowl above a plain stem and conical folded foot. Snapped pontil. 

It has a little seed in the stem...you should think of this as a unique birthmark. It's actually just a little undissolved silica from manufacture. Personally...I like to see this...it confirms its age.

Elegance and strength from a glass made over 250 years ago.

Historical Relevance 

Hand-blown around the time Benjamin Franklin invented his Franklin stove.
