Pontil scars and marks are not a guide as to production date in isolation. We have a beatiful set of Littala wine glasses with polished pontils still in a gift box from Finland. Riedel were still making wine glasses with snapped pontils when we visited the factory in Austria two years ago.
Caution must be exercised when collecting or buying.
These glasses all have seemingly snapped pontils. The feet are also conical. Note the thickness of the glass within the foot, this has not been blown it has been moulded. The base of the foot is very flat and there are irregular non-concentric scars on the underside of the base. These have been finished by either a palette or a footboard. The final clue is the vertical sides of the cushion knop where it adjoins the stem. The foot of these glasses has been formed on a footboard a piece of equipment used from the mid 19th century onwards and into the 20th century.
The capstan stem with knops on glasses with rough and snapped pontils may be seen on English glasses from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. We have a retail catalogue from 1912 with glasses made by Hingley with capstan stems, conical feet and rough pontils " Regency wines".
The glass material itself is clean, in that we cannot observe any sooty particles or undissolved constituents. Cleaner glass was the result of cleaner kilns and advances made in their design after 1870. Thus we have a rough date range from 1870 to 1910
