Glass / Re: 17th/18th century drinking glass?

Hi,

With those measurements its most likely a spirits glass. In reply to your second question , possibly but not really sure why you'd want to narrow it down any further. These type of drawn plain stem glasses were made throughout the mid to late 18th century but as it has a folded foot it probably dates to slightly earlier around mid 18th century.

Sorry I can't be more accurate for you.

Hi looks like a drawn stem drinking glass , hard to tell if wine glass or spirits glass as you haven't put any measurements but probably mid to late 18th century despite the folded foot

Thank you SveziaJonas, that was super fast!
I've looked at other Mdina vases and I can immediately see the similarities.
Many thanks.

Glass / Signed - beautiful green vase
« Last post by Beege on Today at 04:18:49 PM »
Hallo all.
This vase has wonderful colours and is approx 5" tall by 5" wide. It is signed on the bottom but I am unable to read what it says. Can any of you recognise this signature (I've made it black and white to make it more visible)?
Thank you

Glass / 17th/18th century drinking glass?
« Last post by Beege on Today at 03:57:38 PM »
Hallo all.
I have recently acquired this lovely little drinking glass. As my knowledge slowly grows, I suspect this may be quite old. The Pontil mark is very sharp, there seems to be a 'lip' around the base (overlap?) and there is that old 'streaky' appearance to the glass. Can any confirm/refute my thoughts? Is there a way to be specific about the date of such a glass?
Thank you.
