Ruby Red Fenton Glass Lincoln Inn Wine Glass Water Goblet - Pair
Offering a lovely pair of ruby red stemmed wine or water glasses in the Lincoln Inn pattern by Fenton Art Glass. The flared portion of the cup is smooth, while the lower portion is wrapped in a vertical rib pattern that resembles an elongated diamond point. The ruby red color intensity softens by the time the eye reaches the smooth bottom of the cup, appearing to be close to an amberina orange that continues down into the stacked disc stem.Each footed glass stands approx. 5-7/8 inches with a flared rim diameter of 3-5/8 inches and a 6-ounce capacity. (As these glasses were all hand finished, there's an ever-so-slight variation in height and rim flare.) The height of these glasses suggests they are the wine glass — very similar in size to the water goblets, which stand approx. 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch higher and hold closer to 9 ounces.
These glasses were produced from the late 1920s to circa 1940, a time that predated the marking of Fenton wares.
Each glass is in excellent condition, with no nicks, chips, or cracks. There are tiny encased bubbles in the glass, not uncommon in this type of glass, with one or two of the air bubbles surfacing at the rim, leaving a slight dip. (I've studied these with my jeweler's loupe, and these are not tiny nicks.)
