The National Glass Collectors Fair
In Focus: 10 November 2013
Whilst updating the Preview Gallery for our 10 November 2013 fair we chose to highlight significant pieces of glass that were offered for sale by our exhibitors at the next National Glass Fair.
|Finger bowl showing the badge of Earl of Craven.|
This fine example of 19th century engraved glass belongs to a suite of glassware commissioned for the Earl of Craven (c. 1870).
A matching set of goblets was also be offered for sale at our November 2013 glass fair.
The story surrounding the acquisition and identification of this heraldic finger bowl is detailed in an article available via our Glass Archive.
