Glass / Re: Interesting wine glasses - Georgian maybe?
« Last post by The Glass Staircase on September 17, 2017, 04:21:46 PM »
If there is a broken pontil mark then I'd opt for an earlier date around the first to second quarter of 19th century due to the quality of glasses - by mid 19th century all glasses of quality would be finished better (ie no broken pontil mark)

A thought just occurred to me, 1851 and 1901 were anniversaries of the union with Ireland. Perhaps it's related to one of those. Or maybe the union idea is a red herring altogether.

The pontil mark is there. Having done a bit more digging, mid to late 19th century looks a good shout.

This shape/style of this decanter would be described as Late Georgian / Prussian not Victorian - typical decanter shape for the Victorian period was shaft and globe

I can't see if there is a broken pontil mark or not on the foot pictured but usually facet stems (c.1760-90's) have polished concave marks to keep them stable. I'd still say mid to late 19th century/20th century due to bowl shape and foot. Also if they were true Georgian facet cut stem wine glasses the bowls would be smaller

My guess, note guess, would be that it was 20th century and perhaps Czech

 :) That is a very clever idea, Pamela!
An efficient tumble-up. ;D

I was stuck on thinking about it being a jelly mould which would result in a shape of jelly which would have had a recess to put something of a different colour or flavour, or some decoration in. :-[

There is loads of Techie help and info here about posting images directly to the board.

I'm afraid I refuse to click on external links to images; I don't trust the hosting sites, they can mess my pc up, so I cannot see your vase. :'(
