Hi Hil, I have a vague memory of (I think) Dema being mentioned with this shape but i can't recall where.  :-\

This pheasant transfer pattern was used on a wide range of shapes, my mother has tumblers with the same pattern, and I've also seen them on sherries, wines and lager glasses. Search eBay for pheasant and glass and you'll usually see a fair few listed there.

Hil, can you confirm if the rims are plain, or have a lip? The rims look plain to me so the glasses were probably not auto-manufactured, but blown.

Once again, the transfer might be open-stock so that any number of manufacturers could have used them.

Not all machine made glasses had a lip, that was a post moulding process which I think Corning developed.

Mum's don't have the lip either I'm sure.  I see a fair few of these around here. (Yeah yeah, makes a change for me to see much of anything , huh!  ;D)

Fair point Frank - but either way it probably dates them pre-1960?

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the info.
David, the rims look plain but have a tiny lip only noticeable when felt

Hil.

I had a set as a wedding present in 1977 - all gone now
