Alcoholic beverage glass

The glass is complete; there is a small lack on the rim. It is in three parts: the bowl, the stem and the foot, all made from a single piece. The bowl is truncated cone-shaped, with a tapered wall at the bottom and a flared rim with a plain top. The stem is solid, cylindrical and tapered at the bottom. The foot is circular. It has a conical profile and a rounded edge. The center of the underside of the foot shows a slight trace left by the pontil, a tool used by the glassmaker to make the glass. The inner wall of the bowl shows striations; none other than the shape of the object.
