A superb George III hand-blown colorless glass tazza with galleried top rim, Wrythen stem with applied ring decoration and domed fold-over foot. Tazzas were used to display jelly glasses or sweetmeat glasses on a sideboard or buffet...raise them to entice dinner guests and add to the elegance of everything.

This wonderful example stands 7 3/8" high and measures 10" in diameter across the top, 5 3/4" in diameter across the base. It is in very, very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or regrinds...quite extraordinary considering the piece is well over two hundred years old!

Similar examples are pictured on page 248 of 'Miller's Glass Buyer's Guide' Jeanette Hayhurst, consultant. Please note that the stone fruit pictured with the tazza is for size perspective only and is not included with the piece.
