sold to me as a probable later copy of C18 wine/cordial, but I couldn't see anything massively wrong at the time, and still can't - so posting in case I'm missing something.
Greyish colour seems o.k., and bowl decoration around rim has border of stars and shallow punties - seems heavy for size, and ring has good resonance which lingers, so likely to be lead composition. Drawn stem construction - and height is 5.5" - 140mm with foot diameter large at almost 3" - 75mm (ovoid bowl is max. 1.7/8"). Foot shows very noticeable amount of striations, quite high doming and good snapped pontil which retains some sharpness - BUT downside might be the lack of striations on the bowl - it seems devoid of any of the usual horizontal lines etc.........should it have lines on the bowl as well as the foot?
Shows wear on very outer edge of foot, and stem cutting is reasonable quality.
No folded foot, so after c. 1750 - almost certainly, and I'm thinking more like 1780 - 90 perhaps.
Might it still be a Victorian copy, despite all this provenance? and grateful for anyone's thoughts - it was my star holiday buy, so hoping it's o.k. Thanks for looking
