Lynne,
just looking at some Whitefriars pages, and saw these from 1931 catalogue!

ps(cant see anything to help getting caught short at the table, I think by the 1930s, manners
had improved!)

Certainly look similar... which is why I am very loath to assume mine are Georgian!  There must be a way to date this kind of glass, but I am not very good at it.... :'(
Thank you very much!

The earliest these could be would be around 1820; but they might just as easily be 100 years later. Reproduction Georgian glass items then went on to be mass produced in the 1930's; so no real way of determining what date these are from a photograph. There isnt a great demand for finger bowls and rinsers unless they are a set of 6; or are Irish, or have some other redeeming feature, such as an engraved coat of arms etc.
