Georgian Style Air Twist Bobbin Stem Light Baluster Glass Antique 1890 AF

A beautiful, very rare highly unusual antique air twist bobbin stem light baluster glass in a Georgian style of 1750 however, it probably dates from the late 19th century. Some collectors may call this an air twist stem with seven ball knops. It is made from lead glass and has quite a lot of inclusions both bubble and frit. 

The glass has a wide funnel shaped bowl on the bobbin stem sat on a slightly domed folded foot with rough or snapped pontil scar. The base has a significant amount of mossing. This is a nice quality glass and has the slightly greyish hue of antique lead glass but is relatively bright. The bowl rings beautifully when flicked with a finger.

It is in fair antique condition sadly the bowl has been broken from the stem and has been re-glued. Three very short sections of the air twist bubbles have the remnants of some old glue in them.  There are seeds, bubbles and inclusions within the body of the metal, pucella or tooling marks and striations from manipulation during manufacture. It is lead glass and the bowl rings when flicked with a finger. It has a rough pontil to the base which has mossing to the rim. There are some minute chips to the footrim from use and very minor marks on the bowl.
