I found this little glass in a second hand store twelve months ago and paid 20 cents for it.
It is a Georgian wine glass, OXO decorated rim, funnel bowl, facet cut stem, raised conical foot. OXO refers to the decorative addition of an engraved circle/star pattern around the lip of the glass.
When tapped it rings a beautiful bell tone.
The foot is larger than the rim which is a good indicator of an earlier glass.
I believe it dates to c.1790.
