Additional Information : You can see an identical form in the book referenced below. Short-stemmed examples are often mistaken for jelly glasses, but Mr Bickerton assures us otherwise. This also fails the 'spoon test' miserably, we do not have an appropriate period utensil that will get to within an inch of the base of the bowl
