A superb balustroid wine gllass dating to 1740. It has a bell bowl with very rare engravings consisting of a Carnation with two carnation buds and a butterfly on the reserve. The stem has shoulder central and basal knop the shoulder knop containing a large air tear. Conical foot with snapped pontil.
Jacobites and their love of carnations are well documented. We have included a portrait of Louisa Maria Stuart from 1704, known to the Jacobites as Princess Royal, which hangs in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. It shows her large red and white carnation above her right breast with further carnations in her hair. This is the very first example we have had which 'swaps' the rose and two buds for the carnation and two buds. A rare glass indeed.
