An 18th-century facet cut gin glass. The round funnel bowl with step scallop facet cuts to the base which continues down into the neck changing into slice cuts through a shoulder knop with notch cut slice cuts below. Petal cuts to the top of the conical foot which has a snapped pontil.
One of the best example of a fact cut glass we had seen, the slightly smaller form designating the glass as a gin rather than a wine.
