JACOBITE INTEREST ENGRAVED CORDIAL GLASS

Daffodil and Jaybird in Flight

England, c1765

 

Jacobite Interest Engraved Cordial Glass, Daffodil & Bird in Flight, England, c1765 

 

The round funnel bowl engraved with a daffodil issuing from leafy stems,
a crested bird in flight to the reverse
over a double series opaque twist stem,
having a solid multi-ply corkscrew within a pair of six-ply spiral bands,
and a round conical foot.

 

'Daffodils' symbolized 'hope'- the return of spring, and akin to the sunflower,
the return of the Stuart reign.
'The Bird in Flight' is a generic portrayal of the Stuart heir as a bird,

either fleeing or returning, was widespread.

Various types of birds were referenced on glassware, as well as by
supportive writers and poets. Quite often the bird is depicted as a crested Jaybird.
Reasons cited range from the allusion to the name 'James', to 'Aesop's Fables'
