Rare Opalescent Twist Dram Glass

Rare Opalescent Twist Dram Glass

C 1765

Item Ref: 345

A rare double series opaque twist dram glass with terraced foot,terraced foot drams in themselves are not particularly rare, however the rare feature of this glass is the opalescent twist which is a very attractive variation to the normal white twist , over the years I have seen many opaque twist glasses with opalescent stems,wines cordials drams etc which lead me to believe that the opalescence is deliberate,if accidental then as Barrington Haynes comments they are indeed a happy accident.

The moulded ogee bowl is another attractive feature of this rare glass which is in perfect original condition with only a few intact bubbles in the foot worthy of mention.
