A beautiful composite stem English wine glass with a tulip bowl above a stem with a multi-spiral air twist over a teared inverted baluster knop above a plain section. The glass has a domed foot with rough pontil.

The form itself is quite uncommon and when found is almost always with a pointed round funnel bowl or round funnel bowl, and of somewhat shorter height. For a glass of that type see Bickerton p. 193, fig 555. The combination of the tulip bowl and a height of 6 7/8" in this example makes this a much rarer and more elegantly fashioned glass.

Condition is excellent, with no chips, cracks, sickness, inclusions, etc. Good color and tooling marks. The height is 6 7/8", with bowl and foot diameters of 2 7/8".
