Thanks so much for the information and confirmation - very appreciated.

I think if they'd had the Beatles on them then they would have been given to a charity shop decades ago - my mother is staunchly anti-Beatles.

Ref eBay tankards. France were a prolific supplier of blanks to the decorating trade.

That was my intention, but I was leaving it to stew here fore a while.

They were indeed - there are examples with Festival of Britain and 1953 Coronation transfers. However, these are normally embossed 'France' on the base.

That's the first thing I looked for on the base when the glasses were passed to me - completely unmarked, though.

I would hedge my bets on the glass being English then.

As for the naval flag, I poked around:

It would appear that the white cross on a red background signifies 'Affirmative' as shown here:

That would probably make more sense than a Danish flag on a set of English glasses!

There are quite a few that I know of, Tony. I have seen that style of glass before, but the majority appear as small tots.
