Web Description: 
Twist Glass featured stripes in ruby and crystal and in blue and crystal. A Pairpoint catalog notes “the two colors blending together make a very striking effect,” but the colors do not actually blend. They were made separately and combined by the glassblowers as they formed the pieces. This decoration was not made by any other company, and it is easy to identify. The glass was manufactured in only a few shapes, and it is quite rare.
