This is some of the finest craftsmanship we have seen on a glass. The engraving is of a truly extraordinary standard. the fine details such as cut and polished finger nails and cufflinks are a fantastic sign of a truly masterful artisan. The stem. too. is a beautiful example of a light baluster with the true and inverted baluster knops either side of the beaded ball knop creating an elegant symmetry.
