British & Irish Glass / Re: Suite names (or should that be "Sweet names"
« Last post by chopin-liszt on December 16, 2014, 05:06:01 PM »
I think there is something "not quite elegant" about these glasses too.  ;D
There's something odd about the thickness of the thing where the stem meets the body, the upsweeping lines are not right and they're over a sort of lumpiness.
It just does not work.
"page 3" is just so passe, these days, I'm afraid. It doesn't belong anywhere any more.  ;)

The nearest I can find to this shape is a little known suite called "Portia" that has a kick-out rim. these were done purely for style as they tended to chip quite easily.These lack the usual elegance
of Frank's designs

They remind of a pair of wine Goblets (368 & 369)we designed for a City wine merchant now defunct called "Greens" in the Royal Exchange London  ran by two well known characters, Miles Maskell was one.
I thinks the restaurant Greens Restaurant & Oyster Bar was connected and is now at 36 Duke Street off Jermyn Street.
I managed to get a top page 3 model called Gillian D.  to pose for me holding this shapely glass, which echoed the shape of her profile- ( shades of Kim Khardashian!) but I wonder whether it would be censored by the editor of this august website?
I refrained from naming the suite Gillian but it will always hold an association in my mind.......

The Sandwich glass museum have confirmed it is NOT by them, so Back to possibly a French piece then.

I would say it was a completely different shade of green: a lot of companies made uranium jade green glass
Plus when you look at most Sandwich glass you can plainly see a very strong European influence...both French & Bohemian, but I think this one is a bit more sophisticated European in design.

That is an interesting thought - how was the threading done right to the lip? I assume it was threaded to a flat, horizontal rim and the shape of the rim formed afterwards. Can you provide a close-up of the rim, Robert?

yes, assumed so  -   presumably not a lot unlike the Krys-Tol/Jefferson u. custard glass, although perhaps that was more yellow - yours look paler, so perhaps less u.

I don't see in any of the books specific reference to these small creamers doubling up as water jugs for whiskey - maybe just one of those unintended uses when it was found that they were either cheaper or more readily available.

Great, thanks for organising the photos Rosie, much better than a link that becomes useless after a month or three.
