Guest Book
A rather refined Georgian lead crystal wine glass with large round funnel bowl flute moulded to the lower half above a multi-spiral air twist stem with an inverted baluster shoulder knop all standing on plain conical foot. This really is a most delightful and charming glass. The photographs unfortunately fail to fully represent the beautiful unctuous metal or the way the trapped air in the stem sparkles in the light.

Height – 6¾ inches;
Bowl diameter – 2⅞ inches;
Foot diameter – 2¾ inches.

Good original condition with a small (1.5 mm) and unobtrusive white inclusion one third of the way up the bowl. There are the expected patterns of wear to the foot and bowl rim.
