English Bottle Glass

Does anyone have any expertise in or references for dating English
bottle glass items? I am on fairly firm ground with 18th and early
19th century flint glass but know next to nothing about this so-called
'peasant ware'

I have a four and a half inch dwarf-ale glass with conical bowl with
full spiral trailing. It has a folded foot and an unground pontil. The
glass seems to be a lighter shade than I have seen used for early
bottles which tend to be very dark. Any ideas?

TIA
