3027 A Rare and Small Glass Wine Funnel


Click on the images to see more detail

Antique glass funnels are often seen with straight spouts, but antique glass wine funnels  - those with curved spouts, are quite the opposite - they are very seldom seen.  

This is a small example - most are about 5.5", 14 cm. tall.  It may have been very slightly reduced as most glass funnels become chipped at the spout. Nevertheless, it is still well cranked and fit for ourpose.

The similarity of shape between a wine glass and an up-turned funnel allow a dating to be well assessed, and it can be seen that the shape of the bowl closely resembles a wine glass of the period.

Date: c.1770

Dimensions: 4.7", 12 cm. high
