Glass / Re: This doesn't happen any more ,does it?
« Last post by The Glass Staircase on Today at 07:31:35 AM »
Yeah either a bucket or round funnel, I find it hard to distinguish the difference to be honest :) I wouldn't worry about wear , if the foot doesn't sit flush with the surface it only wears on the point that touches the surface and can be hard to spot. I usually use my finger to find wear instead of looking to be honest.  Also it depends on what kind of life the glass has had, I've had early 18th century glasses with very little wear on them so wear isn't always the best way to determine age imo. Maybe the seller doesn't specialise in glass and needed a quick sale?

Thanks for the replies,yes it has a ring,the twist runs in the right direction and in some replicas I see the opaque twist has a gap to the edge of the stem ,with this one it goes right to the side.It's difficult to see from a photo but the bowl has the classic wavy tooling marks and the odd vertical line.It's just that you'd expect everyone to thoroughly research a glass like this and I always like a bit of wear on the foot,although you do hear of glasses that have survived the centuries with no wear.Does seem odd ?but with the foot showing a couple of inclusions I really can't rule it out being a really good glass from 1760!??

Looks like it could be from 18th century - the conical foot and round funnel bowl on your glass are commonly found on opaque twist wine glasses from 1760-70. Does it ring when you tap it? If not possibly continental (Dutch) soda wine glass but still of that period.  Later copies have clumsy twists with brighter metal, yours looks legit

There have been a lot of copies at auction recently in the north west which is really odd especially when the auction houses are putting them all in general sales with no description.They were all very clean and worked as you state.Not saying you haven’t picked up a nice bargain as I’m no expert on glass of that period but there are as many copies around now than there have ever been.
I hope yours is a good one.

T is the Strömbergshyttan design code for a dish I'm wondering if the B you are seeing is actually a 3 as this does have a lot of shelf wear.
Model T377 was 1962

I know very little about this type of glass but they made very good copies of 18th century pieces in the 1930s, maybe it's one of those, I hope yours is 18th and been in a cabinet all this time ! ;D
