Comments

The "plain stem" wine glass of the 18th century has a strength of character unequaled by many of its contemporaries. With an amazing array of sizes, bowls, and foot forms, the 'plain stem' is very much a collector's favorite.  

Folded feet are a desirable feature if available. Rarely have we seen damaged feet when the fold exists. Its purpose is just as important today as it was almost 300 years ago.
