Georgian Toasting Glass with Roundel Decoration c1800

  • Details

    An elegant example of a late Georgian period gentleman's  toasting glass. This glass dates to the days before Victoria ascended the throne. The glass has roundel decoration that shows beautifully, with all sorts. Sparkling reflections dance within the three rows of roundels, depending upon the light.

    Fine, clear thick glass was used in the 18th and 19th centuries for drinking and toasting.  It was the practice that, after each toast, the glass would be brought down with a thump on the table or bar, to properly finish the toast.  Thick stems and feet were required.  This glass stands a hair over 4" tall; foot has a diameter of 2 1/4". Condition ~ beautiful!
