Some later Strathearn is seen with unpolished cut rim, usually surface decorated ones. Stuart Strathearn was all made in Stourbridge and while some of the team did move there, you can generally assume Stuart practises/philosophy.

Ivo can I have some large images of the Strathearn labelled one, it is high time that got on with expanding the Strathearn section onto Scotland's Glass.

Hi leni i think Ivo is spot on if its a bread and butter piece and is not perfect it would be chamfered in the workshop or if someone buys a chipped piece they take it to their local restorer and the easy way out is to chamfer it ie cheaper.You find a lot of this with W/Fs coffins and nailheads and sometimes it goes in to the pattern.
