Ah thanks. I was aware of this shape but would appreciate a decent photo :)

No Orlak though! :(

New items posted on the site - all links available to the respective pages from the homepage:

Orlak Tumbler - mould-blown, 'diamond' optic-ribbed. Sand-blasted logo (thought I was right)

Swirl 'Handkerchief' bowl! Well, a sugar bowl with pinched sides... :roll:

Britannia 'Kidney' dish. Not 100% convinced it is Chance. The 'ovals' are actually protruding and the weight of glass doesn't feel quite right.

Lance Tankard (from House of Parliament!). Metal hinged lid with embossed design.

Spiderweb in Amethyst! This is self-coloured glass and NOT enamel sprayed. First I've seen like this.

I'll take my light along next time and they should look better. There's a lot more from this contact (Mark Bird at Earlybirds) and I'll post more information when time permits.

David - Spiderweb goblet 5½" high.  Design continues on base.  Wonder if there was a decanter to go with it originally?

Interesting. I recently got outbid for one of these and it was described as a sundae glass – would this be a more fitting description, do you think?

I've come across small jugs, but not anything larger yet. I would imagine a larger jug is a possibility though. Thanks for the photo!

Wouldn't hold enough icecream for me :lol:  It is quite heavy though (over 300g) and sturdy - not easy to knock over.  The diam. opening is 7cm.  I reckon you could be right, but as I say, I like my icecream in a BIG sundea glass :wink:

No, I don't think 2 litre stemmed bowls were in vogue during the 1950s :lol:

Dimensions are 4 3/8 inches (11 cm) max height. 3 inches diameter, 4 5/8 inches (11.5 cm), nose to tail. Would you like it for the collection? It has about 4/5 small nibbles (max. 2mm) round the inner rim and was purchased specially ( I would have left it otherwise). No obligation of course.
