Lynn glass is the term used to refer to glasses with this particular type of moulding named for Kings Lynn which strangely cannot be proven to be the birthplace of the style. This particular glass has a round funnel shaped bowl with three Lynn rings over a double series opaque twist stem and a conical foot. Antique Georgian wine glasses, as with all Georgian drinking glasses, are both functional and beautiful and as such can enhance any tableware.
