DESCRIPTION:
Often known as a “Tartan”twist, this exuberant colour twist has a bell bowl above a double knopped stem that has a spiral gauze inside three coloured threads, red, blue and green, the red being backed by a white opaque layer designed to increase the intensity of the colour.

DIMENSIONS:
Height 6¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 2¾ inches;
Foot diameter 2⅞ inches.

CONDITION:
Other than a nick to the foot rim, small enough to be considered within the bounds of normal wear, (see photograph 6 at 8 o’clock, not to be confused with the small seed nearby) the glass is in good original condition. It has the usual signs of wear to the foot and bowl rims.
