GEORGE II JACOBITE ENGRAVED AIRWTIST WINE GLASS
England, c1755 : Stuart Rose & Two Buds, Oak Leaf and Star

 

 

 

The pointed round funnel bowl engraved with :
the Stuart 6-petaled rose and accompanied by two buds
(symbolizing the Stuart monarchs, the deposed James II heirs, James III and Charles,
later known as Bonnie Prince Charlie*),
an oak leaf (Charles II escape from the Cromwellians by hiding in the Boscobel Oak tree in 1651),
and a sun (restoration of the Stuart kings),
raised above collar and a double knopped tapering airtwist stem
(one collar at the shoulder and a smaller on mid-stem)
and a plain conical foot with snapped pontil

 
(The engraver likely Engraver C, as discussed and pictured in
The Jacobites and Their Drinking Glasses, Seddon, p.110-111 and 116-7).

 

The Jacobite use of the oak leaf symbol likely began with the "Gloucestershire Society",
originally a cavalier society founded during the English Civil War.
It was during this conflict that the oak tree began its strong association with the Stuart cause,
when the future King Charles II sought refuge in the arms of an oak after the battle of Worcester.
On his restoration, oak branches were waved in his path and thereafter.
Restoration Day - 29th of May - was invariably marked by popular celebrations involving oak leaves."
