The sooty particles within the glass are a feature of their manufacture and not a flaw. There are also fold lines , "pucella marks" visible in the clear bowl. We have only seen English lead examples previously from the mid 18th century. This is the first of two continental examples. Many thanks to the Musee des Art Decoratifs for their invaluable assistance and answering our questions and for showing us the collection.
