Large George III Glass Tazza,13.75" Wide, Silesian Stem, Mid- 18th Century 

 

The tazza or footed salver of quite large size and heavy weight (54.6 oz.),
the circular tray with 1/2" rim,
raised on an 8-sided Silesian (Pedestal) stem having diamond points,
a large tear and three basal collars,
the domed foot with a wide 3/8" fold; snapped pontil

 

'Tazza' in Italian means 'cup',
these having been used across Europe and England since the 16th century.
The early 'tazza' was a large, shallow wine cup on a high stem.

It soon developed into tall ornately decorated cupped dishes intended for decoration,
as well as for food (rather than beverage).
This elevated shape allowed additional space on the crowded tables,
as well as adding elegance, grace and visual interest
The foods served were generally small, as hors d'oeuvres and desserts.
As these tazzas were expensive, they would have been
used in the homes of only the wealthy and aristocratic.
