It is not my field unfortunately, but tigerchips this link a week or so ago. Maybe you can find one like it there.
Sorry that I can't be of much help.

If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

It is unfornuate that most people on this board are art glass collectors and that why you won't get many replies.

First to look in an old glass is the colour of the glass. If it is white and bright than it is no older than 20C. All you have to do is pick up any clear modern glass and compare. If it is same colour then it is modern. Old glass tend to look grey.  20th c reproduction glass also have pontil mark.

Second twist glass of the 18thc has conical foot and not flat foot.

If you glass look perfectly made then its modern. Old glass always has bit and pieces or bubble in the glass.
By looking at your glass l think it is 20thc glass. l have two 20thc reproduction colour twist glasses myself.When l put them next to my old glasses it shown straight away.

Hope this will help you.

I don't think that is the case at all Ming. There are many people on the board who collect glass which isn't what would be thought to be art glass. I think you'd be more accurate in saying that no-one yet has the information which ultimatecodfather is looking for. As the query will remain on the board that situation may change in the future.

There are many collectors across the whole spectrum but I can understand why you said that. The largest group of visitors are the more active on the net and this tends to be those that are collecting the major interests of the present age. The classical collecting areas of drinking glasses and cut glasses have a low profile these days but there does seem to be a swing in those directions starting up. I for one would welcome a fresh look at the earlier periods of glass and the only way that will happen is by questions being raised. We also seem to lack collectors of flat glass and bottles, although they probably lurk quietly in the background.

Hi can we have a photo taken directly from the side ie in profile (I think that is the correct term) also a picture of the base showing the pontil. The stem looks a bit narrow/thin but it may be the angle of the photo.

Cheers

Ian

Hi ultimatecodfather

Your glass is a 20th C reproduction of an English Georgian colour twist wine glass. Not without value; it took some effort and skill to produce :)

Perhaps it is a Mike Hunter.
