This is one of the best stems I’ve ever had the opportunity to offer. It features a solid ruby-red bowl. It is thought that this glass is actually cased with clear and red. The color is so beautiful and in the right light you can see hues of other colors. Truly a rich display!
The piece is cut in the Persian pattern and I’d guess it was made by J. Hoare. The Persian pattern is just like Russian but instead of fans on top of the buttons in the pattern, there are clear button hobstars. There is also an unusual clear channel cut above the pattern. The stem is fluted and notched and the base is finished with a rayed star.
This wine glass measures just over 4 ½” tall and 2 7/8” wide at the top. It is in perfect condition with both the original top and bottom. This is absolutely a scarce item with unusual coloring – stems don’t get much better.
