Identifying Some Thomas Webb circa 1930s glassware
« on: March 22, 2021, 04:19:27 PM »
Hello,

I have this pair of green glass ware. There is a Webb marking which I think is from 1936-1949,
But I have no idea what they actually are / used for??

Any ideas?

Thanks

Depending on size, it could also be for cigarettes.

Cigarettes: they have an ashtray at the bottom. These would have been on your dining table; one for each guest
