THE WEIGHT OF THIS ITEM EXCEEDS THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT ALLOWED BY INTERNATIONAL POST AND MUST BE SENT USING A COURIER SERVICE IF POSTED TO AN ADDRESS OUTSIDE OF THE UK. This is what we believe to be a long set of ten Georgian/Regency, hand-cut and hand-blown small wine glasses dating from the early 19th century, c1820, and probably blown at the Waterford Glass in Ireland. Dudley Westropp shows an identical glass with that attribution in plate XXXII in "Irish Glass". They have a mixture or rough and polished out pontil marks on the bottoms of the feet.The glasses are in excellent condition for their age. This means of course that they show age related wear to the rims of the feet consistent with some 200 years use. The glasses have ogee-shaped bowls measuring 6.8 cm (2.7 inches) in diameter at the rims. The bowls are cut with a band of small diamonds and a basal band of panels.
The bowls sit on collars and plain stems with medial blade knops. The stems lead to conical feet which also measure 6.8 cm (2.7 inches) in diameter. The glasses are 10.3 cm (4.1 inches) in height. Dimensions vary very slightly from glass to glass as should be expected of hand-blown glasses. A few of the glasses have slightly smaller feet and look as if they have been professionally ground down to remove foot rim chips.
There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any other obvious evidence of restoration. Each glass weighs in at 167 g.
