Recently I bought a boxed set of Whitefriars C438 "Garland" sherries, glasses exactly as topic British? 1 + 6 cut decanter + glasses - ID = Whitefriars C438 Sherry Set
â€” with box as per Hajdamach II plate 659 (and back endpaper) front left with printed label " 'GARLAND'/Six Sherries/Pattern No C438 ". While I was buying these I asked the dealer if he had any other Whitefriars boxed sets, and he produced a box which had come with the sherry set, empty save for three pattern number labels, together with two glasses which didn't fit the box but had come from the same source. Below I have also used two approximately 10 oz (half pint) whisky glasses for comparison, both of which fit the box quite comfortably. The White Horse glass measures h. 3Â¾" 9.2cm by d. 3" 7.7cm; the plain glass 3Â¾" 9.5cm by 3Â¼" 8.0cm.
I can't find any unstemmed glasses in the comprehensive set of Whitefriars catalogues reproduced in Whitefriars dot com other than two sizes of tumbler. Has anyone seen an example of these C438 "Garland" 10oz Whisky Glasses? If not this box might be the sole evidence of their existence!
The two small glasses have capacity 6oz to the rim, and will take 5oz comfortably, so are approximately half the size of the whisky glasses. What are they called? They measure h. 2Â¾" 7.2cm, d. 2Â¾" 7.1cm, w. 8oz 235g. They could be C438 "Garland". Has anyone seen that style of base star on a Whitefriars piece before? Opinions sought, please.
Thanks for your interest,
