Thos. Webb 'St. Andrews' pattern for Stonier?
« on: July 01, 2012, 12:04:03 PM »
a sherry and whiskey tot with what I'm certain is Webb's 'St. Andrews' pattern - both in lead crystal - although I notice looking at the Discontinued Designs site, that their glass for Scotch is just a tumbler.         Quite a distinctive design with fan cutting and something similar to a  Brunswick Star.
The smaller glass carries Webb's backstamp for c. 1950 - 66, and the sherry shows just an upper case 'S' - which we've discussed before as indicating having being supplied from the Liverpool department store of Stonier.
Stuart were big suppliers to Stonier, and as Neil has pointed out Molineaux and Webb were their biggest supplier back in the late 1920's  -  so is it unusual to find that Thomas Webb were in on the act as well, or has someone already commented on that, and I've missed it?    All thoughts welcome, and thanks for looking. :)
