Glass / Re: Vintage tumbler?

Pretty sure I have seen these in a Sowerby catalogue, possibly 1885, haven't got mine to hand at the moment so I can't check.
I have seen similar items in at least two different sizes over the years.
Glass / ID help. Caithness glass 1960's stem vase. O'Broin??
« Last post by Stan54 on Yesterday at 05:01:56 PM »
Can anyone assist in the identification of this vase.
It is just under 6" tall, cased at the base,could be twilight or soot in colour and is made of very thin glass.
I bought it in the North of Scotland.Could it be a early Domhall O'Broin piece??
I'm not sure, so any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks Anne,iíve Just done a serious measurement and the width is 7.7cm and the ht pretty much 10.2 although it has a slight lean,itís got to be I would say.If I were an optimist there could be a small O or D on the base,but this could be a slight blemish from the making.I love it and the seams work really well with whole aesthetic,itís got character.Thanks again :)

VSL has got a goblet with the dimensions H 10,2 cm x D 7,6 cm. It has the same amount of 11 layers. Catalogued 1913 as 'marqued  nr 41' but i don't know how serious to take this, as unmarked items are not unusual. Designed around 1900.

Hi Ekimp & Sue,

Thanks for the info, I would never have thought they were called Ďsleevesí, no wonder I couldn't find any. I have taken the plunge and ordered some from a wood turning suppliers in the US, not quite 100,000, but they should keep me going for a while...fingers crossed that they fit or I might just need that blu-tack. The Ďtube end capsí look like a viable option though.  ;D

Thanks for the replies,it could be Victorian as it has air bubbles and a few inclusions I just thought the fish eye pattern maybe a bit younger?.Itís 10cm ht and 8 cm Wd was with 11 layers, no number sadly,thanks.

Another option could be Ďtube end capsí that come in different diameters but you would have to cut a hole in the end. Cheap on eBay.

St John was a small company licensed to make some Maximals and Minimals, but they didn't adhere to the conditions of the license and things went a bit pear-shaped.
Some of the things they made were not of high enough quality and they changed designs in a manner Michael Harris wasn't overly happy with.

I resorted to a slim flat ring of blu-tack between the rim of the bottle and the base pad of the stopper to hold it in place. All my plastic bits were perished.
