Distinguishable from English Georgian glass by the fact that it is made of soda glass this is a beautiful example of Dutch glassmaking. Although the majority of our air twist and opaque twist wine glasses are of English origin the Dutch too were prolific makers of exceptional glass. The glass is typical of the Dutch glassmaking style which includes far more examples of the colour twist stem than their English equivalents.
