That type of bladed knopped stem on that type of foot was popular around 1825, so they could be included in the wider definition of "Georgian". But not really 18th century.

They're nice, but also they could also be later repros. Not easy to be sure from photo.
Are they worn on the base?

Ive brought this post back with some added pics for some more help. A friend of mines inlaws collect old glasses & he is interested in buying them as a gift for them. Only thing is im not sure of their value they are certainly old with worn bases and uneven sides & i have seen ones similar fetching good money on ebay ive posted some more pics to see if it helps.
Cheers

The feet are perfectly round and have been made in a clapper - a production method which came into use around 1880, the stem has been made separately and the foot has been added.  This single knop tableware was probably produced between 1870 and 1930, give and take a few years.  Very similar items are found in the Holmegaard and Aalborg catalogues of that period - which serve as an identifyer for tableware produced elsewhere.

Pretty much all of the Danish glassworks were producing very similar snapse glasses from around 1850 - 1950. Holmegaard were still making them into the 1970s/80s.

I would agree that they're pre-1920/30, though.

UCF — last year I bought a small collection of books on early glasses, and your query gave me the excuse to have a look through them.

While I could not find a precise match, there were several glasses quite similar.   However, the proportions of all these 18th- and early 19th-century glasses were quite different.   All had a foot diameter around 25% to 40% larger.

I also looked up "Georgian".   It is strictly the accession of George I in 1714 until the death of George IV in 1820.

Hope that helps.
