Two of the threads within the vertical gauze are adjoined. This has a most pleasing effect within the composition of the stem. The internal scratches may be removed but this is not without its risks. The bowl is very generous and we believe that a toddy stick has been used to crush sugar within the glass to sweetent the contents. It remains in good unrestored condition
