Georgian Petal Cut Ale Glass Engraved Hops and Barley Antique Rummer c 1820
A beautiful antique Georgian mouth blown and petal cut ale glass of rummer form with wheel cut engraved hops and barley decoration. This glass dates to the early 19th century around 1820, George IV was on the throne in the UK when this glass was made. Probably made in Stourbridge, Shropshire, England.
The glass has an ogee shaped bowl with the lower half having three rows of ten petals cuts, giving a floral pattern when viewed from above looking into the bowl. The one and a three quarters inch long stem has an upper ball knop and is sat on a plain conical foot which has a snapped or rough pontil with some black coloured inclusions within it..
This is a lovely quality glass and has the distinctive slightly greyish hue of antique lead glass. It rings beautifully when flicked with a finger.
It is in excellent condition with no chips cracks nor restoration. There are signs of tooling marks and some bubble inclusions in the body of the metal. Inclusions within the rough pontil.
This glass along with the others, which are being sold separately, shown in one of the images are a part of our personal collection that we have listed for sale. This glass is great for use or for a collector of ale glasses or rummers, Georgian glass or items with a link to brewing.
