This is a superb English MSAT wine glass with a vermicular collar. It is a pair with item g1252 and matches g1251, though that glass is considerably and uncommonly larger. The glass for sale in this listing is shown on the right in the first photo.

The bell bowl is finely engraved with a band of fruiting vines below the rim. The stem is a multiple-spiral air twist (MSAT) with a nicely fashioned central vermicular collar. The conical foot has a rough, snapped pontil.

The glass stands 7 1/4" tall, a very large size for this form. The bowl diameter is 3" and the foot diameter is 3 1/8". There are two small seeds in the foot, of no consequence or impact on the value or beauty of this glass. Good color, tooling marks, and striations, with no condition problems of any kind.
