A Georgian Lead Type Small Mead Drinking Glass circa 1780 (Code 8188)

Click any image for a larger view


A late 18th century antique small drinking glass dating to the George III period around 1780. The glass is of English or Anglo-Irish origin and is produced in lead glass. The construction is of two piece type, the bowl and stem being drawn from the same gather of glass.

The foot is of folded form which adds extra strength to the footrim and the pontil scar is rough snapped. The bowl is of shallow cup form, a design which is associated with drinking mead at this period.

The bowl is etched with a bow and swag design - this pattern was often found on Anglo-Irish glass and it is possible this example is from this region.

Condition Report
