A very unusual early 19th-century glass with a bucket bowl. The bowl has been engraved with hops and barley with a Jay bird and the initials FPB. Sits on an angular knop stem above a conical foot with a polished pontil.
Unusual engraving for this form of glass, the hops and barley normally being reserved for an Ale glass. However, the glass is traditionally not large enough for Ale and was probably used for some other strong malted barley liqueur.
