Very early 18th century English drinking glasses were quite heavy. As the glasses became internationally popular,
a large tax was levied upon glass products by weight in 1746 - and additionally thereafter - usually to support a war.
Among the most beautiful results of glassmakers' attempts to make glass both lighter and more decorative was to
lighten the stems by poking holes in them - first occurring as airtwist stems. English lead glass cooled slowly,
enabling the spirals to be turned with absolute precision.
