A fine and very uncommon opalescent stem double series opaque twist (DSOT) Georgian wine glass. The round funnel bowl is engraved with leaves and a budding rose on one side, and a shrub on the other. The stem has a pair of 11 ply spiral bands outside of a central corkscrew. Conical foot with rough, snapped pontil.

There are no condition issues or flaws in this glass. The height is 6 1/4", with a bowl diameter of 2" and a foot diameter of 3".

NOTE: The opalescent color is produced by intentionally cooling the glass slowly, and in some cases repeating this. This causes some crystallization inside the glass, resulting in the desired opalescent effect. This process was rarely done for English wine glasses in this period, and is a lovely and much appreciated affect.
