121E SPANISH WINE GLASS of the Allaire Collection

Remarks: Probably from Cataluña the maker of this wine glass took his influence from English wines of similar form.  Of straw tint, the transparent thin-walled bowl is funnel shaped on a hollow inverted baluster stem.  The rippling in the foot shows that it consists of two layers of glass, with one collapsed upon the other.

Date: C. 1785

Ref. Frothingham, Spanish Glass, 1960 plate 39A, Philippart, Fragil Transparencia, 3011, P. 142 (ribbed)
