Can anyone help id my glass drinking set please?
« on: December 04, 2012, 04:24:10 PM »
Hi
I've got a very pretty emerald green jug or pitcher and glass set, I don't know if the glasses are rummers? I'm sure they are all hand blown as each piece has a polished pontil mark to the base. Within the glass throughout this set, there are occasional bubbles. The colour of the glass is a uniform emerald colour but the slightly diagonal rigdes going up the glass cause the glass to be thicker in places causing a richer colour to the glass resulting in an almost soft striped detail throughout in certain light.  I think this is quite an old set as there is a lot of wear to the base of each piece though I have no idea about the maker or country of origin. Does anyone know anything about my set please?
Thanks  :)

Also looks a bit Whitefriars - ish as well... just starting to take an interest in W/F and I'm sure I saw a Jug very like this one as part of a 'lemonade' set... I will see if I can find out more... I'll be back if I do.  Rosie. :)

You are correct Anne, I've seen those colours too.
It's really not wfs - that's a common, but incorrect, attribution.

Agree entirely Sue, not Whitefriars. No idea who though.
