Heavily Made Scandinavian Stub Goblet With Three Dimples??
« on: March 29, 2021, 06:57:38 PM »
Has anybody ever come across these goblets before they are overly produced
in a very strong and heavy crystal and seem to be made in two pieces where
the foot and stem meet the bowl it would appear they were joined together.
The bowel has three dimples the stubby foot seems to ring a bell ???
Hope somebody remembers where these maybe made  :)
4 3/4" tall

What makes you think they are Scandinavian?

Hi John, I guess the three dimples they are made with a straw being pushed into the
glass when its still molten to create a real ergonomic fit for the fingers when holding
the glass and the heavy duty foot well i have a few Scandinavian home books and there
are some similar also in that just a feeling i guess ???

I am not saying they are not, haven't a clue myself. Tend to find it useful to keep an open mind though, stops you being blinkered to other possibilities. There is nothing like them in Leslie Pina's books on Scandinavian glass but there is inevitably only room for so many examples in each.
