From memory I think these were made in Portugal and sold by a designer outlet called "Casa Pupo" in London, could be wrong though.

Just found an old pic of a set in blue with decanter, might help jog someone's memory:

I'm sure I saw one somewhere with a black label on the base saying made in Portugal, just not quite 100% sure... :spls:

I know the item is totally different, but check the second pic on this ebay listing [Link].

That's the label I saw on one of these goblets.  Just wish I could prove it lol.

Ok, after muchos Googling, this is the best I can find in the way of proof:

[Link 1] - A pair of white goblets like yours, which apparently used to have the Casa Pupo labels.
[Link 2] - Same design, different colours, apparently have the label, but no pic shown. The red one reminds me of your items Keith!
[Link 3] - Some info about Casa Pupo.

Thanks everyone - especialy Wayne - the Goblets do seem to be Casa Pupu - amazing compnay making pottery and fabrics and all sorts - sold in L|ondon outlets in 60s and 70s I think

Anyway - they are not what I thought they were - in a way they are imitating an old English design

they were made by Casa Pupo - I have 6 wine goblets, 6 large water goblets and a wine decanter...they are blueish green - turquoise and they are beautiful....pity they discontinued them as I would have bought another 6 of each to make up a dozen
