A satisfyingly heavy and solid example of an English composite stem wine glass made from lovely clear lead crystal metal with waisted bell bowl, (infrequently found in the composite stem group of drinking glasses), joining to a particularly fine and refined multi-spiral air twist upper section to the stem whose threads emanate from the bottom of the bowl. The lower section of the stem is composed of an inverted baluster knop containing extended beads that continue into the lower, plain section of the stem below which there is a basal annular knop. This complex stem stands on a plain conical foot.
Height 6 inches;
Bowl diameter 2½ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.
In excellent condition with light wear to the underside of the foot and bowl rim.
