Dessert cup

The bowl is complete. This object was known as Jelly glass. It is cylindrical in shape. It comprises a bowl, a stem and a foot. Its wall is high, slightly flared towards the rim, which is also flared. The inner base has a convex bulge. At its base, the bowl curves towards the stem, which is solid. It is composed of a half-bouton resting on a stem flared towards the foot. The foot is circular, with a truncated cone profile at the top. The underside shows a trace of glass pontil. There is a glass burr at the junction of stem and foot. It is geometric. The lower half of the bowl is adorned with uneven fluting with a domed top. On the stem, these become small vertical ribs that extend to the foot. The half-buttons of the stem are also decorated with these small vertical ribs.
