A fine and beautiful balustroid type ale or large wine glass, of lead metal. The pointed round funnel bowl, which has close wrythening, flares slightly, making it almost a bell bowl, and sits atop a stem with a wrythened flattened shoulder knop and a wrythened basal knop. The stem also has close wrythening. Such a stem is often referred to as rib-twisted.

The glass is in superb condition, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. It is 5 3/4" tall, and has a 2 1/2" diameter bowl, and a 2 1/2" diameter folded foot with rough pontil.

English glasses of this type were generally made for export.
