Exceptionally Rare 18th Century Scalloped Foot Dram Glass c1750

£280.00 $355.12 Product Code: SG2023010805

Technical Description

An 18th-century dram glass dating to c1750.

 

A round funnel bowl with half flute moulding above a plain stem. Sits on a very rare Scalloped foot.

 

There are so few of these scalloped foot glasses around, it would be difficult not to describe them as exceptionally rare. 

 

The Scalloped foot is found on a few monteith glasses (see page 255 of LM Bickerton) and a scarce example may exist of a sweetmeat. We can confirm an example on a tankard from the same era, where the foot was described as a Petal Lobed foot...which is a more accurate description. However, as yet, we havent found another documented example on a stemmed drinking glass.

 

The foot is not cut, but created by the use of a tool which is pressed against the edge of the foot when soft to create a petal effect. You may sometimes see facet cut glasses and/or sweetmeats from the late 18th century described as having a scalloped foot, but its a cutting technique rather than a shaping tool.

 

Either way its a fantastic glass and part of an extensive private dram collection which Exhibit will be presenting over the next week.
