Everything below the double blade knop including the short plain stem section and the entire foot is a modern replacement. The upper blade knop of the pair acts as a "gluebit " to adjoin the original elements of the glass. There is a vacant cartouche and a matching ruby glass medallion may be missing.

This was clearly valued highly enough to have the foot and short length of stem made to replace the damged elements. We have asked our restorer to estimate the cost of such work and his advice was in the region for £150 plus. In pristine condition for a goblet of this stature one could reasonable expect an auction value of £800- £1000
