Antique English Knopped Opaque Twist Wine Glass c.1750
A refined looking Georgian drinking glass made with lead crystal glass with a very crisp flute moulded round funnel bowl above a multi-spiral opaque twist with a medial knop standing on a plain conical foot. Single series opaque twist glasses with knops are relatively uncommon ⎯ Barrington Haynes puts them at about 5% of all opaque twists.

Height 5¾ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 2¼ inches.

In excellent condition with the expected wear to the underside of the foot.
