I have finally got my computer up and running again after the wireless fisaco,don't ask but involves 13 year old daughter
I purchased a job lot of glass on Thursday and this was in the lot. Its by Webbs (its signed on the base Webbs Coronation and a large posh crown) and is really beautifully engraved with all the National symbols, thistle, acorns, rose, shamrock and two tiny leeks, on both the front and the backhttp://i16.tinypic.com/6430mqg.jpghttp://i16.tinypic.com/4yqp7bc.jpg
But its the writing around the foot that has me confuddled, it reads The Worshipful Company of Glaziers,http://i16.tinypic.com/52o2n2c.jpg
now sorry to sound really stupid but who or what are The Worshipful Company of Glaziers
and why would
they commision a vase/trophy thingy?
