A beautiful and unusual cordial drinking glass, with a round funnel bowl, the lower half of which is fluted. The stem is of the double series opaque twist type, and is comprised of a 17-ply spiral band outside of a lace twist. What makes this a truly special glass is the domed helmet foot, and the overall proportions.

The glass is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or restoration. There is a small slight "ripple" on the underside of the foot, which occurred at the time of manufacture when the foot was formed. It truly is of little import, but I have shown it in the final two photos in the interest of full disclosure. Color, striations, and tooling marks are wonderful. The height is a goodly 6 15/16", with a bowl diameter of 2" and a foot diameter of 2 3/4".

The Irish attribution is based on the heaviness of the glass, the tint of the metal, and the thickness of the stem.

Note: Because of the extreme closeups of the photos, and the non-ideal lighting conditions, there might appear to be spots, discolorations, or hazes in the glass, which are not present in person.
