Glasses of this type were produced for a long period. The foot is domed and this is indicative of an earlier date. The stem is comprised of a blade knop ( merese) above a ball knop and cushion. This is also indicative of an earlier date. Finally the glass is not thinly blown as one would expect with very early examples.
