Drawn trumpet opaque twists are particularly rare. The chip in the foot had to be filled as this glass demands the optimal method of restoration . Grinding and polishing would have reduced the diameter of the foot to 8cms at best. This is a stunning twist and a rare form. This is only the second opaque twist with a drawn trumpet bowl in our catalogue of over 520 examples.
