pressed tumbler with diamond point name.
« on: October 23, 2012, 07:58:23 PM »
Nominally a pint (bit less), but if Continental might be half a litre possibly, and stands about 5.5/8" (c. 145mm) tall.         Appears to be a common type of tumbler anywhere from last third of C19 to well into C20 - the sort of thing that Silber & Fleming describe as a 'soda-water' glass, with arched flat flutes, and so thick could probably come out in one piece after a pub fight! (very heavy).          Am I correct in thinking that the shape of moulding of the inside of the bottom can be an indicator of age?     In this example the base of the inside is constricted just before it reaches the flat bottom.          Has a bird bath base, with shed loads of wear on a smooth outer foot rim.       However, need help with decyphering meaning of word 'Sycars' (if that is what it's supposed to be) - which produced with diamond point - and, I could be wrong, but script looks Continental, perhaps.    Thanks for looking :)

I suspect "Sycars" is a minor celeb. who drank out of the tumbler which was then taken by a fan who inscribed the name on it. I would have said it was more 'girly' than 'continental'.

Sycars?
Looked like 8 years to me!

thanks for the replies :)            I really hadn't thought about  '8 years',  but I do see what you mean Neil - though now I'm more confused than ever :-\           Get the feeling it's from the latter part of the C19 though.
