Antique English Knopped Opaque Twist Ale Glass c.1770
DESCRIPTION:
An unusual ale glass of with an elongated round funnel bowl above a double series opaque twist stem with shoulder knop. The twist is fashioned with a pair of spiral tapes inside a pair of close multi-ply spiral bands. The glass stands on a plain conical foot. The glass is constructed of lovely clear lead crystal glass.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 7¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 2⅞ inches;
Foot diameter 3 inches.

CONDITION:
In good condition with a ⅜ inch section of the foot rim which feels slightly rough or sharp. This has resulted from when the glass was manufactured and is caused by there being a grooved tooling mark that travels diagonally across the outside edge of the foot rim. The existence of this tooling mark is a reassuring sign that there has been no restoration to the glass that is in excellent condition throughout.
