18th Century Cut Glass Sweetmeat With Domed Foot, Circa 1750 For Sale

18th Century Cut Glass Sweetmeat With Domed Foot, Circa 1750

This is an 18th century sweetmeat (desert) glass circa 1750. Its bowl, stem and domed foot are elaborately cut. The glass is made of very fine heavy lead crystal. The underside of the foot has a rough pontil and appropriate base wear. This is a substantial piece, weighing just under a pound.

Sweetmeat glass were used to displaydeserts, dried fruitsand other snacksat the formal dinnersof the very wealthy during the 18th century.

A similar example is shown in Miller's Antique Checklist, Mark West, p. 133. A nearly identical example is show in A History of English and Irish Glass, WA Thorpe, pl. CVII. Both examples are dated 1750.

The glass has two chips in the bowl rim and a few small nicks in the foot rim. See photos. Cut glass of this period got a lot of use and is often found with some chips or restoration.

A skilled restorer could easily clean up the issues.

Height: 6 3/8" Bowl: 4 1/2" Foot:3 6/8"

Note: As a very general rule 18th century stemmed glasses show larger foot rims than bowl rims. Sweatmeet glasses are the consistent exception to this rule.
