A late 18th century Georgian period wine glass dating around 1780. It is a facet stem example with a rounded funnel type bowl. The stem is diamond faceted and the large conical foot has a rough snapped pontil to the underside. The bowl is engraved with a rose and rosebud, and a fleeing bird. The flower head can also be seen by looking straight down through the bowl, the careful cutting of the bowl base forms another rose shape when viewed this way. These are symbols of the Jacobite cause, but the glass is too late in history to be a termed a true Jacobite glass as the cause was spent by this time. Glasses with such symbology were still used though by those remembering the uprising, in the way a club or society has it's symbols. The glass is of English lead type and it is a good example of it's type.
Very minor wear. A couple of tiny nicks to the foot rim.
