Isnt the  T  just the gadget mark? There is a description of one type of gadget tool here:

https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php?topic=28538.0

Most places seem to date the use of the Gadget from 1860s to 1890s. Sometimes you can see where the other side of the clamp was on the top of the foot or on the lump at the bottom of the stem.

Thanks for your comments.

I am fairly sure they are French.

Translation of this line.

'En France, le ouraline fut redecouverte en 1838 par Bontemps dans sa cristallerie de Choisy-Le-Roi'  pp12 BAGUIERS et VERRE A BOITE, L. Darnis

'In France, ouraline was rediscovered in 1838 by Bontemps in its Choisy-Le-Roi crystal factory' printed page 12 BAGUIERS and VERRE A BOITE, L. Darnis

I am English speaking and only speak conversational French,  the title of the book can mean different things, I think it means dishes and glass box, I need to get it checked by a bilingual Friend.

She has got back and says it means 'baguier = a small box to keep rings in, verre bote - a glass box, or a box with glass lid'.

The link to the pdf of a book on glass was useful as it lead me to this website with links to glass resources, so I now have a lot of reading to do.

The honeycomb glasses I have found are all very hand made and no two are exactly the same, they also vary in height.

The search for information continues...

Thanks that very clearly shows a perfect T, the ones on these glasses are far more haphazard and uneven in depth.

But it appears they are formed the same way.

I have plenty to learn!

Hi, the book is full of footed bowls and beaker and goblets :)

That was the title of the book - I just added it as a source reference.


There is some amazing information out there if you know how to search for it, yes this site is good.  I am pretty sure there are research conferences and papers presented somewhere on there.
