Sorry - this item now sold
An extremely rare colour twist cordial glass with bucket bowl above a colour twist stem composed of a transparent blue spiral inside a pair of opaque white spiral gauzes standing on a plain conical foot. As a whole this glass is wonderfully austere in design with proportions that suggest possible Irish manufacture.
