Pair Regency Dwarf Ale Glasses Trumpet Bowl Ball and Blade Knop Antique c 1820
A very attractive and good quality pair of Regency period dwarf ale glasses dating from around 1820.
The glasses have a trumpet shaped bowl and the lower part has panel cuts. The stems have a knife edge or blade knop above a ball knop. They have been hand blown and have a ground off pontil on the base. There are tooling marks and inclusions within the metal. There is the amount of wear on the base that you would expect to see with an antique item of glassware for the table.
The glasses each stands 5 1/2 inches high and have a base of 2 1/2 inches. They weigh 264g unpacked and are in very good condition, one has a little clouding to the faceted panels.
This is a lovely pair of antique glasses to add to any collection and are great pieces for display and use.
