Technical Description 

An 18th-century wine glass dating to 1760 with a large round funnel bowl featuring both hammer and rib moulding. Sits upon a single series opaque twist stem consisting of a pair of spiral tapes. Conical foot with snapped pontil. 

Compared to the norm, this glass not only has a large bowl but also a rare variant in decoration with bands of hammer moulding above rib moulding, which is not something you will see very often. Overall a very fine glass which can be used with modern wines if required.  

 

Historical Relevance 

Hand-blown around the time George III became King of Great Britain on the 23rd of October 1760.
