The blue in emmi smiths w/f  wanabees look very close, but what about the swags and mould pattern. ?

Emmi's W/Fs link to a blue water jug and tumbler shows what I believe is Webb's Ribbonette  -  and although not an easy pattern to capture on the camera  -  looks something like the attached.          It is in fact shown in Hajdamach - C20 Glass - page 54. :)

the point being that the lines used to create the pattern are strainght, and not curved as in the swags of this blue one.

Thanks once again for your input on this posting,I wish there something more I could contribute.
In the paul s posting the webbs ribbonette glass seems to have a six sided mould mark,so that's not exclusive to w/friars ,maybe ?
Thanks again.

I have just bought a set of 6 of these blue swagged tumblers.  I have had a close look at the Ribbonette advert in 20th Century Glass, and I think that the swags on that are much more in a V shape than the swags on my tumblers.  Also the tumblers in that set appear to be flared towards the rim, whereas mine are more straight sided, with only a gentle outwards slope all the way from the bottom.

There is picture  in Lesley Jackson's Whitefriars glass book, fig 172 page 70, from the Thomas Webb Catalogue 1930-31 showing a set called the Pitcher Suite.  Although there are no matching water glasses to the pitcher shown, there is one on a tumble up that looks very similar to my set.  Unfortunately the picture isn't terribly clear.  Does anyone have any of this set to compare?

I would be very interested to hear what John Phillip says, Essi, thanks :)
