Offered here is one flint glass wine with the most beautiful hand cut decoration of a drape and tassel. This decoration is repeated (4) times around the bowl.

It is extremely difficult to cut curved cutting in glass as seen on the drapes. There are small cross-hatch decorations on the bowl and single flute cutting around the top edge and on the underside of the foot. The flint glass bowl, stem and foot were blown and attached separately. There is a broken (or open) pontil on the bottom which further indicates an early age of the wine glass.

I attribute this wine to the Pittsburgh area and possibly by the Bakewell Company and made very early in the cut glass industry in America. The wine glass stands 4 1/4 high and 2 1/8 in diameter across the top and the foot. The item "Pittsburgh Flint Glass Wine Blown and Cut c.
