An elegantly proportioned and executed Georgian wine flute, of lead metal. The drawn trumpet bowl sits above a double series opaque twist (DSOT) stem which is comprised of a pair of spiral threads around a central gauze. Conical foot with rough, snapped pontil. The condition of the glass is excellent, with no cracks or chips. Good color, striations, and tool marks. There is a very small pot stone at the rim and foot rim. Any discolorations, specks, or streaks are due to the photos. The height of this fine piece is 7 1/4", with a bowl diameter of 2 1/2" and a foot diameter of 2 5/83".

NOTE: For almost identical glasses, see item numbers g1366 and g1367 elsewhere on this site.
