Origin : England 
Colour : Clear 
Bowl : Drawn trumpet, this is a two piece glass!
Stem : A ten ply spiral band outside a pair of corkscrew tapes
Foot : Conical
Pontil : Snapped
Glass Type : Lead 
Size :  12.3cm height,  5.4cm diameter bowl, 6.9cm diameter foot 
Condition : There are two chips on the rim of the foot. 6mm x 2mm and 3mm x 2mm *
Restoration : None

If the chips were to be polished out then the diameter of the foot would be reduced by 4mm at best. Artificial wear is then usually applied to disguise the restoration. The alternative will be to have the chips filled with baked resin, this will maintain the integrity of the glass but the restoration is more easily visible.
