This glass dispells the myth about the relative diameters of bowls and feet. It was Eric Knowles, who is a very nice chap and "man of the people", who explained on the BBC that the diameter of the foot on a good Gorgian glass was always greater than the bowl. This is a good rule of thumb, but no more than that
