Dimensions: H = 13,5 cm.; H stem = 6,3 cm.; ø bowl = 11 cm.; ø foot 7,8 cm.; weight = 75,9 gram.
Origin: Venice or Tuscany late 16th early 17th century.
Stem definition: This is another example of a stem “a tige” or like a twig.
Description: The exceptional component to this glass is the merese between the trumpet shaped bowl and the stem enhancing the elegance of this glass. More common is that the bowl is directly set to the hollow “a tige” stem. The hollow stem is set via a merese to the rather flat foot. The use of a merese is more usual for the “a jambe” stems, setting the bowls to the “a jambe” stems.
