Of all air twist wine glasses less than ten percent have double series mercury twist stems and fewer than one in ten of this group had a bucket bowl. This is a rare wine glass without the engraving .

Bucket bowls are used on just one in twelve Jacobite engraved glasses. Mercury twist stems appear on fewer than two percent of all Jacobite wine glasses. Thus the combination accounts for less than twenty in on a thousand Jacobite engraved glasses.

It is not a coincidence therefore that this is the only example that we have offered for sale. It is a very rare glass
