The price of wine greatly impacted the size of glasses in Georgian England. There’s no point making a giant glass goblet if you can’t afford to fill it up. Clearly that wasn’t a problem when this was made meaning that it comes from before the American War of Independence which was met with a sharp rise in the cost of wine. This holds  a full bottle.
