This glass comes from the Michael Wallis collection which took over 45 years to build and contains over 250 drinking glasses, covering all forms from the 18th century, many exceptionally rare. They will all be presented by Exhibit over the coming weeks and months.
This is a very unusual and rare form (which you won't find elsewhere) having such a thin stem with a very tight multispiral and we cant recall seeing another cordial example in this form. Another fantastic example from The Wallis collection.
