Example 20

A Façon de Venise Glass # 123 of Elisabeth & Theo Zandbergen

Dimensions: H = 13,1 cm.; H stem = 3,5 cm.; ø bowl = 6,8 cm.; ø foot = 7,1 cm.; weight = 66 gram.

Origin: Almost certain the Netherlands ~ 1650

Material: “cristallo”.

Stem definition: This glass is typical for this period with the gadrooned bottom part of the round funnel bowl, and the distinctive stem architecture. The bowl is set via a short cylindrical solid section on the first hollow basal knop, followed by a hollow cylindrical section commencing to the second hollow basal knop set on a small disc connecting to the spreading folded foot. The sober stem architecture has some resemblance with glass # 28 or Example 12
