6 Ice/Bark effect 500ml Goblet Glasses - ID = Ravenhead Siesta
« on: September 12, 2010, 11:28:48 PM »
Hi, i have these 6 half pint glasses. They seem nice quality but judging by the base they maybe moulded. They have a nice weight to them with quite thick bottoms at 15mm and each glass is 11.5cm tall. The only similar thing ive seen is by IIttala (think ive spelt that right). Im sure there from the same period. Any help please..

Not sure about the bases but I think I have seen glasses like this by Ravenhead or Ravenshead.  I would assume they are mass produced due to the type of rim, so they would probably be moulded.

Yes Ravenhead Siesta, google it and you will find many boxed examples, every charity shop in the country has them hanging around. Ravenhead must have made zillions of them (must have been a successful range).
