An unrecorded and possibly unique antique English composite stem wine glass. The upper portion of the drawn trumpet bowl leads into an extended plain bowl base. This is above a double series opaque twist stem, comprised of an extremely wide spiral tape outside of a pair of spiral tapes. Completing the rarity of this glass are a shoulder and medial knop. The foot is of conical form, with a rough, snapped pontil.

There are some small internal annealing fissures to the opaque tapes, due to cooling. These are very much exaggerated in the photos. Aside from that, the glass is perfect, with good tooling, color, and striation marks. The height is 6 5/8", with a bowl diameter of 2 11/16" and a foot diameter of 3".
