A tall and fine ale glass of lead metal. The elongated round funnel bowl sits atop a double series opaque twist (DSOT) stem that contains a 9-ply spiral band outside of a pair of heavy spiral threads. Alongside each of the threads is a air strand. This in not that uncommon and generally referred to as an incidental thread. However those are generally much thinner than here and do not follow the entire length of the enamel twist. It is not clear if this was intentional, but it does add to the attractiveness in this case. The conical foot has a snapped, rough pontil. Good tooling marks and color.
The condition of the glass is excellent, with no chips, cracks, haze, or restoration. The height is 7 1/2", with a bowl diameter of 2" and a foot diameter of 2 7/8".
