Rare Georgian Cordial Glass Mercury Twist c1755
Please refer to our stock # g1245 when inquiring.
A beautiful and wonderfully proportioned antique Georgian cordial glass. The round funnel bowl tops a rare stem configuration of a double series air twist (DSAT) comprised of a pair of 7 ply spiral bands outside of a central pair of mercury corkscrews. The plain conical foot has a rough, snapped pontil.
The glass is 6 1/2 inches tall, with a bowl diameter of 1 13/16 inches and a goodly foot diameter of 3 inches. The condition is superb, with no chips, cracks, or restoration, and the glass displays fine color, tool marks, and striations.
