Dating this glass accurately is quite difficult with some features indicating an early 19th-century date and some slightly later. What can be said is that a green bowl on a white opaque twist stem with a green foot is just about as rare as they come with very few examples in existence.
Taking everything into consideration 1830 is fair...it could be as early as 1800 and as late as 1850 but I don't think it really matters as it an exceptional glass.
