Glass bird vases made by Who's Glass, Devon

It's only a matter of time before one of these appears on the board so having the reference here now might be useful.

They are two bird vases, one clear, one green.. pics here:

The interesting thing is that these are contemporary and being made from recycled glass bottles... yup! The clear ones were Orangina bottles and the green ones Perrier bottles. See more of their output here: http://www.whosglass.co.uk/gallery%281896420%29.htm

They also produced a pair of goblets which seem to remind me of something we had on the board fairly recently: http://www.allthingsgreen.net/marketplace/recycled-olive-wine-bottle-wine-goblet-glass-boxed-p-10132.html.

Were the goblets similar? Sadly those links have expired.

Two Who's? Glass goblets both engraved on the foot, impressed WG mark as well. Interesting design as the stem is hollow and part of the cup, perfect for any sediment in your beer/wine to settle into. ;D

Possibly, but I can't remember John!  Who's Glass are still around, but they have changed their web domain to http://www.glassreform.co.uk so it will be worth a look, or even an email to them re the goblets?
