could anyone through any light as to the age of this glass please it has a pontil mark on the bottom
They're referring to them as Footed Pilsner or Retro Sling Glasses.
Here is a somewhat similar glass, they are calling vintage Mid-century.
The ebay-uk glass has a different foot. The seller has no clue what his/her glass is. Sez it's Noritake, tiki, gray glass, pilsner, vintage...
The OP is a pilsner, used for beer drinking. It could be MCM, vintage or made 2 weeks ago. There is no way to determine age. A set would be 6, 8 or 10. A single, such as yours might be worth $5.00.
As stated, here is a SOMEWHAT SIMILAR glass....I was only getting an idea of what kind of drinking vessel I was looking for....and I called it a Footed Pilsner, which is for beer.
You really should try taking a photo of a glass against a solid background colour. Plain Black or White would work well. Also, sometimes pouring a dark, opaque liquid (such as black tea as coke with its bubbles may be too distracting in the design) into the glass to eliminate see through and also helps to emphasise the etched design on the surface of the glass. Ensure you have sufficient lighting to show the angles in the glass, or a suitable flash.
Great tip will do that. I’m leaning towards a dram glass or penny gin (sham dram) these sorts of glasses where introduced in England during the regency and Victorian era when gin was popular. The idea that the glass was made to look like it held more gin than it actually did. Or could be a schnapps glass but they don’t tend to have a long stemWhat’s your thoughts Michael.
You are suggesting that it holds a minimal volume of liquid? Like all of the designs elements I cannot really make out, are actually glass? Then, definitely, we need some different photos. That will go a long way....(Michael will most certainly agree)
Telling us the dimensions of the glass itself would also be very helpful. Perhaps you could use a familiar object next to it for scale?
So, it is purposely deceptive in hold much it holds? Such as the 19th century glass from the website above.
