This has most of the attributes of an 18th century wine glass. The observant will notive a few omissions and errors.

Firstly this wine glass lacks any marvering lines on the stem, there are no touch spots or pucella marks in the bowl. The fold in the foot is too perfect. The glass itself is too bright and the wear that exists on the foot has been mechanically applied.

This was made to deceive and thus this glas is a counterfeit, a very good one and the best fake that we have seen in many years.
