Bonnet glass

The glass is complete. It is circular in shape. In cross-section, the upper half of the wall is slightly swollen towards the rim, which is straight. The lower half of the bowl is recessed and curves towards the stem, which has the shape of a flattened sphere. The foot is thick, with a deformed circular shape and a truncated cone profile at the top. The underside has a slight off-center circular indentation and a trace of glass pumice. There are traces of wear under the foot; the decoration is molded. It is geometric. The wall of the bowl is decorated with staggered cells that continue to the rim. They become small, swollen ribs on the knob resting on the foot.
