Good day all
I just found this forum - hoping to get help/pictures/actual glasses...
I work with a small glass industrial heritage museum near Kosta, Sweden.
We have a biggish "etching machine", rather a pantograph for duplicating a pattern onto 24 glasses before etching them, from Kosta glassworks. We also have some 120 templates (with some 200 different patterns) used on this machine - among them 12 related to London hotels and restaurants.
It would be very nice to have some actual glasses, of course, but pictures would be almost as good...
The 12 pattern templates can be seen on http://bergdala-glastekniska-museum.se/eng-london-baserade.html
together with the one picture we have found of such a glass.
All or any help would be highly appreciated!
(and: we have done our best to get the terminology as accurate as we know how - but we also would be happy to get suggestions of how to get it better - there is a "contact us" button, or write it here, or PM me)
