Thanks

Your rim has been cut and fire polished, though not very well, hence the wrinkles

Copy and paste text into Google Translate for another method:

https://translate.google.co.uk/?hl=en - this is set to translate to English but it is simple to change the source and destination languages. The auto detect does not work every time.

Dear Mods.......I think I put this in the wrong place.  Please would you move it to the glass for identification section of the board.  Many thanks Cat

British & Irish Glass / Re: Stuart pattern name request
« Last post by Paul S. on Today at 08:00:58 AM »
thanks  -  if there's one thing we learn about glass designs, it's that for reasons of success, popularity or whatever, some endure for a very long time, and there are known Stuart patterns that have been used over many decades  -  'Beaconsfield' must have been going for a century or thereabouts and some of Kny's cut patterns have had long lives.
Knowing this does mean that it's wise be a tad circumspect about dating a piece of glass solely on the pattern  -  it might have been made early in the life of the design, but equally possibly much later, and there are other factors that can help  -  style of the backstamp and wear should also help.

This are some v.g. similarities between the decanter and the bowl  -  certainly wouldn't surprise me if there is a connection, but will decline for the moment to put head on the block and say identical. ;D                           thanks again.

think I recall Nigel Benson making some comments in the past about Stuart pattern catalogues  -  he might have said there were four and they were owned/held by someone, but now don't remember details.           I might have that wrong completely, of course.

Unfortunately the Wikipedia article is only in English available and hard to understand.

I am not good with the very modern tools and techniques but I guessed .... and found that this worked ...

1. Open the wiki page and copy the url to your clipboard:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosensitive_glass
2. Open google translate in a new tab / window
3. Set the "From" language to "English" and the "To" language to German
4. Paste the url into the "text box" for the "From" language
5. Click on the url in the "To" language
Google Translate will then open a new tab and display the article in German

Hope this is of help.  :)

(I wonder if there is an easier way?)

Scott, I used to think the same about flat rims on drinking glasses, but they are more common than I realised.  is your piece around 17cm tall?

I tracked it to the original site - antiquesatlas.com.  Not much info, looks like it was sold by scottishglass and they had a date of c.1935 but no pattern name.  It would be handy to see the Stuart 1930 catalogue, but I couldn't find one to view online, only to buy.

giving this Pinterest suggestion some more thought  ………………………  despite the absence of a long central cut connecting the short mitres, plus a different arrangement of short cuts on the Pinterest decanter - there is perhaps enough to connect the two and suggest they may have sufficient in common to be related.

There are some cut patterns where by reason of size of the piece, the entire original pattern doesn't fit or whatever, and is therefore reduced in overall appearance  -  but there's no doubting it's a design seen uncommonly.
