A George III period, circa 1770, mid 18th century wine bottle of squat cylinder shape with a medium / wide body and kick-up base. Some collectors may call this of mallet shape, they usually date from 1760 to 1780. Dark brown free blown glass, marvered a little off true and oval. Free-blown; short cylindrical body, long rounded shoulder, tapering neck with applied ring below lip; high broad kick-up; rough pontil mark.
It is in excellent condition, here are tooling marks and bubble inclusions within the body. Some very minor rubbing to the sides from storage It is slightly off level so has a slight wobble when placed on a flat surface, not truly cylindrical, slightly oval. There is some tooling marks to the rim and what may be a small chip, but we think it relates to the tooling of the end. Only mentioned for complete accuracy. Please see the images.
This is a lovely item to add to any collection and a very decorative display piece.
