Opaque Twist Cordial Glass

Opaque Twist Cordial Glass


Item Ref: 271

A superb and rare single series opaque twist cordial glass with a round funnel bowl which is flute moulded to the lower half, this sits above a shoulder knop and medial knop multi spiral twist stem which is extremely well executed, this is not always the case when knops are introduced to multi spiral stems,the combination of moulded bowl, knops and height make this a less than common cordial glass.

Apart from a very small scratch to the upper surface of the foot which can be seen in the images the glass is in excellent condition.

Height 6 15/16th ins 17.6 cm

For a parallel without a moulded bowl see " Strength and Cheerfulness " Delomosne and Son Ltd 1997, page 29, described as the "rarity" of the group.

A smaller example with fluted bowl is illustrated in Bickerton plate 618
