from a description from the Museum of London: Ogee bowl, formed in a mesh honeycomb dip-mould and blown, pinched into basal knop; on conical pad foot. rough pontil mark. rim burst off and flattened on hot surface. see link to the described piece at the Museum and here offered for sale. clear rings in different tones. beautiful. Me, not being a glass scholar I can list descriptions from various sources MOL, Scottish Antiques & The Corning Collection.  gleaned from the WWW from Scottish Antiques:

We have never liked the purpose as described by Corning for Monteith and Bonnet glasses. Certainly very large Monteith glasses with notched rims were used as wine rinsers. Literature says that Monteith glasses were named after a Scotsman Montrigh who wore a coat with a scalloiped hem. This is a bonnet glass, not a Monteith and it is not a rinser. Some authors state that they were used for servinge dried or candied fruits or spices. Personally they serve most very well with a wee nip of whiksy.
