Stevens and Williams Swingewood? Adam and Eve It.
« on: February 03, 2016, 08:27:26 PM »
Here is a nice glass near identical (apart from the subject matter) to the one on page 178 Hajdamach 20th Century British glass.

Looks beautifully made, no pontil and some base wear.


5 inches in height, 2 6/8th inches across the rim and 2 1/2 inches across the base.

The figures are 1 1/4 inches in height

It probably tickles them too!  Unless it's prickly or nettle-ish...  ;D

I'm sure this is Swingewood but now i'm beginning to think the birds of paradise are Arculus and not S&W, the third battered example i have come across recently but i picked this one up due to the stupid price and unusual cut stem and foot i have not seen before.

It measures  7 1/2 inches in height and is missing the rider, the pen holder and glass bar or pen?.
