This is a Georgian double series "mercury" air twist stem toasting glass dating from the middle of the 18th century, c1750.
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age. It shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the base of the foot.
 
The glass has a trumpet-shaped bowl measuring 6.5 cm (2.6 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain and sits on a double series mercury air twist stem consisting of a single thread intertwined with an air gauze. The stem leads to a conical foot which measures 7.5 cm (3 inches) in diameter. The glass is 18.8 cm (7.5 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious signs of restoration. There are some tiny unburst bubbles in the metal of the foot, and an incised mark where the stem meets the bowl, all dating from manufacture.
