There are 4 ?whiskey tumblers and 4 different colours, Smoke, Orange, blue and Amber. Each measure 3½ inches tall. Thanks for any help anyone can give

JC:
Hi Della That was quick. :o Thanks for that.  :)
I was off getting more pics, decided maybe just the one pic wouldn't be enough.So took on of the base and one looking down inside.

Hi JC

I would definitely put your glasses onto www.whitefriars.com.  It's possible they come from the Glacier range, but coloured glasses in that range are as rare as hens teeth and I really don't know much about them.

For instance, I'm not even sure the coloured range was cased* as yours is.  But the bark effect on yours does seem to stop short of the upper rim, so it's worth a punt showing them to experts on www.whitefriars.com as I said.  

They might want to see the other colours you have...  :?:

*cased means has a clear glass 'wrapper' ie it isn't solid red right down to the bottom.  :wink:

JC:
HI Max, thanks  I have done as you suggested.I went round and round circles for awhile trying to work out how to post over there, but think I got it worked out and posted in the correct place.
