This is a pair of highly unusual rummers in an extra large size, dating to around 1820. 

Each glass has a capacious ogee-shaped bowl. The galleried rim is hand engraved with an intertwining grapevine motif. This sits above the tapered portion, which has been mould blown to form eight petals. These terminate at a thick, discoid collar at the junction of the bowl and the short stem. The latter has a high ball knop surmounting a short, cylindrical portion. There is a thick globular join at the junction of the stem and the broad, discoid foot. The latter is plain and has a central rough pontil mark. 

The glasses are made from a low lead glass which has a very pale yellow tint. 

These glasses do have some minor discrepancies in their conformation, which is to be expected from such pieces. One glass is marginally larger than the other and has corresponding larger petal moulds. The second picture also shows that one glass has a slightly lop-sided top. 

Each glass has a height of approximately 16.8cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 13.9cm and across the foot of about 9.9cm. As previously mentioned, there are some discrepancies in the dimensions due to their handmade nature.

Each glass has a liquid capacity (to the brim) of 600ml.

They have an unwrapped weight of 1280g. 

They are in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks, although there are some wear and tear scratches to the bowls and underside of the feet commensurate with age. There are also some enclosed bubbles and frit, which are to be expected. 

These are probably some of the biggest rummers I have ever handled and it is uncommon to find a pair still together.
