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

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:

Hi Julie,

Yours has a totally different base to mine and the glass on yours is a lot thinner.

Maybe you have found some hens teeth.   :D  :D

Hi Julie,
I don't know if it's a help, but here are some pictures of two clear ones I have.
Side View
Base

There are differences between the two - the texture of the left one in the first photo is much "crisper" than the other. I don't know if there is a particular reason, maybe the mould and/or glass was hotter?  :?

Rim width is 82mm, height 92 & 93mm.

I would vote not Whitefriars, as the interior baseline, i.e., between the red and the clear, is curved but the leaflet shows a straight line as do Robbo's glasses
