A Georgian Antique Double Series Opaque Twist Wine Glass with Ogee Bowl (Code 9343)
A Georgian English wine glass with an opaque twist stem. The stem is quite an unusual form with a pair of loose multi-ply corkscrews outside a central multi-ply tight ribbon corkscrew.

The bowl is of ogee form and has moulded flutes over the lower bowl and shoulders. A nice example.
Two small nicks to the foot rim, shown in images. Slight mineral and air bubble inclusions. Appears original without polishing/restoration.
