Sounds about right to me. Glass that looked like porcelain was very fashionable at the time.

The term "Bristol" glass is an American invention applied to almost anything old and enamelled; yes glass was made in Bristol and some of it may have been enamelled but very little still exists. The glass industry in Bristol was no longer making decorative stuff by the date of these.
