Photographing glass do you go about photographing something that is both transparent and highly reflective?

This is what I tried. I used a little table top collapsible studio thingy with a grey background draped at an angle - held there by the weight of the glass.

I need the glass itself to not be lit directly otherwise the edges would have disappeared. Instead I used a snoot pointing at the background and the subject was lit from behind. The glass edges now appear slightly darker than the background rather than just reflecting the light.
