A fine and uncommon toastmaster's baluster type glass featuring a deceptive waisted bucket bowl above a collar. The stem has a medial swelling knop and a basal knop. A wide foot with a rough snapped pontil gives this glass a wonderful stateliness. Great color, striations, and tool marks, with a real heft to the weight. For a virtually identical example see Bickerton, the 1987 edition, item #187.

Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. The height is 6 1/2", with a bowl diameter of 1 5/8" and a foot diameter of 2 3/4".
