Machine engraved rummers?
« on: April 25, 2018, 12:18:48 PM »
Hi,I have a couple of machine engrave rummers ,probably early 20th or late 19 century.They have polished pontils and a very nice long ring,can the makers be identified from the engraving or did a lot of people use the same patterns?.I should add the resizing has made them appear more squat than they are,many thanks.

It is a common pattern to find engraved on older glasses, but I think, even with the distortion, that they might be unusual glasses to find this sort of engraving on.
One of the other patterns found, in a similar vein, is called Pall Mall, I don't know if searching for that might help pin something down?

There's a wee typo in your title which seems to change the meaning - I was expecting to see a marching band engraved on them.  :)  Mod: title amended.

Lol,sorry about that,I hope it was the predictive text!..they really are very rummers like in the real and I'll have to alter the settings on the photo reducer thingy next time.Pall mall are very light and I think a lot were continental made where these are solid and well leaded,but thanks I guess there is little chance of pinning down the maker.

Yes, Pall Mall are not crystal, are they? But it's a very similar pattern to one of the ones in that genre. And even with the distortion, I can see the glasses themselves are something a bit better. ;D

So far I found this pattern, in french called 'Circulaires', back at Choisy-le-Roi and VSL, both around 1908 but as Sue mentioned, i'm sure you can find it back elsewhere and you'd have to go for the shape to pinpoint it.
