Stuart glass - cockfighting

(1/2) > >>

RAY:
trying to find out when Stuart glass started, i know they used 3 different mark's but i can not find the date's for these , i picked up 2 nice airtwist stem wine glasses with wheel engraved cock fighting scene, on the foot of the glasses is the acid mark "Stuart" with the wiggly bit under the last letter t , anyone have any idea of the date?

thanks Ray

Dodsworth from 1926, Jackson from 1927.   Christine Golledge, Stuart's Archivist, in Dodsworth, notes enamelled cockfighting scenes in the 1929 pattern book.

Nice find, Ray.

well got to admit it was the wife that noticed them 1st, we went to a antiques fair on boxing day , just as we were about to go the wife can over and said , I've spotted two airtwist  wine glasses for a £1 each with birds on them i thought must be Bohemia so i went to look and they were scenes of cock's fighting so i got them, only when i got home i noticed the Stuart on the base, i can not understand why these did not sell 1st off, anything to do with cock fighting sells very well, i will try and post some photos

£1.00 EACH !*!*!

That's got to be the record bargain for 2004.
