An elegant glass with some rare and unusual features. The bowl is a well defined ogee type, with moulded fluting and a wheel engraved formal foliate border above a triple series mixed twist composed of an opaque spiral tape inside a spiral air gauze alternating with an opaque spiral tape standing on a plain conical foot. There is an often-quoted adage about rare glasses, which says: “The rarer it is the uglier it is.†This glass completely reverses the rule… Although it is complex in construction the maker has brought that complexity into a harmonious, well-proportioned and satisfying whole.

Height 6¼ inches;
Bowl diameter 2 inches;
Foot diameter 3⅝ inches.

Excellent condition with normal age related wear and no signs of restoration
