Rare Pedestal Stem Compote

Rare Pedestal Stem Compote

C 1750/60

Item Ref: 355

A very large and impressive sweetmeat, or more likely, a compote glass, the wide cup bowl ( 5 1/2 ins) has two tooled rings at the rim and sits on a double merese over an eight sided pedestal stem with arched shoulders and long tear to a four ring basal collar , all standing on a large domed and folded foot.

Compote's from this period are very rare and I could only find one other reference which is a baluster period example discussed and illustrated in the Golden Age Of English Glass by Dwight Lanmon, he also comments that he could find no other parallels.

Height 6 3/4 ins 17.1 cm

A magnificent glass in superb original condition.
