An important antique drinking glass, a beautiful tall Newcastle light baluster (NLB), featuring the Dutch engraved coat of arms of Kurt Christof, Count von Schwerin. The engraved border has a pair of sitting doves, foliage, and a single dove about to take flight. The large pointed round funnel bowl sits atop an inverted baluster knop, above an angular knop, which in turn is above a true baluster knop. The foot is also quite special and uncommon, being engraved, domed and folded, with a rough, snapped pontil. 8 1/8 inches tall, 3 11/16 inch diameter bowl, 3 7/16 inch diameter foot.

Note: Count von Schwerin (1684 - 1757) was an extremely important military figure in the Prussian army, conducting battles in the Silesian Wars and the Seven Years War, and was made general field marshal and a count by Frederick the Great.
