4 inches tall, marked 'Tudor' can't find the pattern on any of the usual sites, a pair for a £1 seems ok to me  ;D ;D

Not completely traditional, and very, very attractive.
It is good to see such interesting non symmetrical cuts above the other bits. ;D

According to Roger Dodsworth's book 'British Glass Between the Wars' -  he says of the single word backstamp   ......  "Registered as Trade name 1927, User Claimed from 20 May 1924.      Of the slightly later mark  'Made in - over Tudor - over England  .......  he says simply 1930s.    This second one gives rise to the joke  Made in Tudor England  ;)    I don't recall seeing your mark before Keith, but I may simply have forgotten.    Nice glass  -    small relief diamonds would you say?
