A fine example of a triple knopped double series opaque twist (DSOT) antique wine glass. The bell bowl sits above a stem with three heavy spiral threads outside of a loose central gauze, and with shoulder, medial, and basal knops. Conical foot with rough, snapped pontil.
The vast majority of opaque twist glasses have straight stems, and the addition of even one knop adds substantially to the difficulty of making them, and the value. Each additional knop increases these factors. Also, unlike many multi-knopped opaque twists, which are poorly fashioned and on the spindly side, this fine piece is elegant and wonderfully proportioned, standing a goodly 6 1/2 inches tall, with a 2 9/16 inch bowl diameter and a 2 3/4 inches foot diameter. Excellent condition with no repairs or restoration.
