4064 A Facet-Stem Goblet

Click on the images to see more detail

This is a handsome goblet.  The almost ovoid bowl has a large capacity, and is devoid of decoration. The stem is cut with hexagonal facets and rests on a conical foot.  The glass has no chips or cracks, and the rim and foot have not been trimmed.

While this is far from dishwasher-proof, it is all the same, a practical wine glass of generous capacity - perfect perhaps, for a glass of cool Beaujolais on a summer evening!

Date: c.1770
