Hi Chris, Thanks for the new pics. Yes I see the differences between the blue and amber tumblers... the base is slightly different and the bowl shape is too. The Dema advert is certainly closer to the blue ones, isn't it? Wouldn't it be good if we could find a definite Dema one and put it alongside your other two and do a side-by-side comparison?  :-\

Thanks for posting the Sherdley pinwheel pics. Looks like a definite match for the 1940 Woolworths advert.

Hats off to you - I don't think I have the patience for comparing pseudo-cut-glass patterns!

I had the bowls sitting in the sideboard.  Been using them for trifle and fruit salad for donkey's years.  When I saw the ad, they jumped out at me.
Won a "free" box of pressed glass at an auction the other week (it got lumped in with the lot I actually wanted).  When I looked, the tumblers were sitting on top.

Etched amber Stuart glasses

Rather nice set of 5? registered design number 681307 February 1922 all are etched Stuart England but not all have the design number etched on the base. See a lot with the Stratford rings but not with etched/cut pattern.
Just under 4" high, being more of a tumbler shape would they maybe come from a water set with a jug perhaps? rather than a decanter. Any help regarding pattern, possible age, I realise they were made any time from the registration date onwards but maybe someone can narrow it down with the style.

Chris  - no real evidence for this other than experience, but I associate such simple free-form naturalistic decoration with the post-war period '50s - '70s.

Hooookay! Today I found 4 unlabelled clear glasses in this style, which I bought to compare with my amber Stuart ones. The clear ones are, I think, the Dema machine-made ones.

The clear ones are much thinner and lighter than the Stuart ones. I weighed the clear ones and each one is 100-101g, my scales aren't accurate enough to get closer than that. The Stuart ones vary between 226g - 255g, so much heavier.

Chris can you weigh your blue ones for comparison please?

i have no doubt the blue glasses with the rings are Stuart , i also believe the collection of Nazeing was one i uncovered thru a friend  and passed on to other friends as i was going in to Hospital at the time , i have never heard of the outcome of this , but i am pretty sure this is the case , of course i could be wrong . my friend says  :-X

I too agree, they are most likely Stuart "Stratford" glasses. 

Currently I have a thread running in the glass section [ http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,48421.0.html ] which is to do with blue Stuart Crystal.  Interestingly, while mine has labels on the jug and four of the five glasses, none of the items has a touch mark.  This seems to be so for all of the pieces mentioned so far - I wonder why.   Further the base of the glasses seems a little unusual compared to others of a similar shape to mine.

If you scan through the thread you will find a link to a Stuart catalog I put up on Yobunny where the profile of Stratford glasses is quite clear.
