A superb and elegant multiple spiral opaque twist wine glass, with four features contributing to the rarity of this glass. The first is the bowl, which is highly unusual and could best be described as ogee form with an extremely swollen upper portion. Second is the enamel portion itself, with a multiple spiral opaque twist (msot), a type encountered very infrequently. Third is the presence of a central knop, with any knop on an opaque twist being uncommon. Finally is the folded foot, occurring extremely rarely on opaque twist glasses.

The glass is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. It is 6 15/16" tall, and has a bowl diameter of 2 13/16" and a foot diameter of 3 1/8".
