Ivo, I was going by the information on the Kilian site under a glass which is pictured above it (and looks to be the same as mine) -

Quote
Römer aus dem Tafelservice WILHELM. Rheinische Glashütten A.G Köln-Ehrenfeld um 1888. Schwach grünes Glas. Schaft mit eingeschlossenen spiralförmigen Hohlfäden. Abgesetzter Nodus. H. 19,5 cm
Lit. W. Schäfke: Ehrenfelder Glas des Historismus, Köln 1979, 180, Nr. 435.

I couldn't see in that description that there was a doubt about the origin of the glass?   I thought  the wording
Quote
Lit. W. Schäfke: Ehrenfelder Glas des Historismus, Köln 1979, 180, Nr. 435
was a reference to where the identification came from?

Also in the other link, the glass I referred to was three down on the left.  That one does not have 'ahnl' written on the description, it is id'd as Wilhelm and is the one on the page that looks exactly the same as mine.  The others that have 'ahnl' written under them are all slightly different to that one and to mine.

Did I misunderstand?

Thank you so much!!  :sun:
I'm now scared to use them at all although I do think they should be used at least once.

My concern was that your glasses didn't seem to be made in three pieces: bowl, stem and foot. Yours looked to be bowl and stem/foot

Apologies for the late reply, but I've been away for a couple of days.
Yes, I can see exactly what you mean on the photographs Christine :)  They are so impeccably made it does look like that.  The foot is drawn up in the middle very slightly as a shape, where it joins the stem, and in person you can just, on some of them, feel the 'join' as it were.

So you should be - and delighted with your tenatious sleuthing to get the id.
They're just gorgeous - don't let the children near them.

Mother gave me a sip of wine from a crystal glass when I was a toddler (she started me off on the booze at an early age) I took a bite out of the glass at the same time as the sip of wine.
There were panics for ages before the bitten-off bit turned up - in mother's cup of coffee a few days later. :spls:
Cheers, Sue (M)

I've just added two more at a price I could afford :) to make it a set of 8.
Very happy to have a couple of 'spares' just in case. Might use them more often now.
