Catalog Number R1985.6.1
Object Name Glass, Wine
Description Wine glass of conical form with knopped stem above a domed foot; decorated in underglaze blue, polychrome enamels, and gold, with chevron border at the rim, a chrysanthemum roundel amongst flowering branches on opposite sides, floral sprays bordered by narrow bands on the knop and foot.

Occasionally decorated in the 'Chinese Imari' style and usually described as wine flutes, with variously shaped stems were also used for champagne, cider, and ale.

Although the Chinese copied numerous glass forms, this part of the porcelain trade never seriously threatened the European glass market.
