Origin :  England
Colour :  Clear
Bowl :  Drawn trumpet with touch-points to rim
Stem :  Air twist - eleven separate strands which are very closely packed towards the foot

Pontil :  Snapped
Glass Type :  Lead
Size :  15.3 cm tall - 5.9 cm diameter bowl - 6.5 cm diameter foot 
Condition :  Excellent - no chips, cracks or flakes; mossing to foot rim; a 4mm scratch to the outside of the bowl, and fine scratches internally

The capacity is low even for a mid 18th century wine glass and a good case can be made that this is a cordial glass

We are often asked what we mean by mossing. Natural wear on the foot of a glass looks matt, however under magnification it is made up of a mesh of random fine scratches.
