Sorry to tell you your wine glasses are not Webb or Steven . They were made by Tudor of Stourbridge. Tudor was a smaller firm than Webb and the man at the intaglio dept was Jack Lloyd.  
Here is my Tudor wine glass just compare with yours. Same pattern except foot pattern. My has the mark " Tudor Made in England " on the base.
Jack Lloyd produced some excellent intalgio glass. This wine glass is not top quality for him and produced after the war.

My best piece of Jack Lloyd glass was post a few months ago. Just search J. Lloyd in the Glass section
and see the photos.

For the engrave and intaglio dept at Tudor where was only one name- Jack Lloyd. He was trained at S&W in the late 20thc and later went to became the head of intaglio dept at Webb but only for two years. Left to work for Tudor as head of Intaglio dept for the rest of his life.
He produced the best work before the war and after his retirement his old clients at Tudor still only purchase his work.
The company has no choice(Tudor is relatively small) but to ask him to return. John Sanders(the expert) said one of the director had to pick Jack up from his house in the morning and took him home for lunch and returned to factory later  and took him home again after work. He worked until 92/93 years old and died very soon after(possible due to overwork my opinion)
He did signed most of his work on the bowl and pre-war work had  the word Tudor without Made in England on the base.

Here is one of my J. Lloyd glass. Three different designs on one glass.
