Collection Of 17th & 18th Century Drinking Glasses

This varied group of 18th century glasses comes from a private collection. The collection also includes two glasses from the 17th century.

Highlights include:

  • An extremely rare Jacobite toasting glass with folded foot. Prior to 2005 this glass had not been seen by collectors since the1960s.

  • A high quality monogrammed air twist "Cyder" glass.

  • A fine Lynn glass with well defined rings on the pointed funnel bowl.

  • A small opaque twist goblet as featured in George Davis' book.

  • A beehive knopped air twist with fruiting vine and polished grapes.

Four of the glasses remain on hold and will not be available for purchase. These can be seen on the top shelf (3rd & 7th from left) and the 3rd shelf from the top (4th & 10th from the left).

All glasses are in fine original unrestored condition, except one that has a very minor polish to the foot.

These glasses will be available exclusively at the National Glass Fair, as the exhibitor does not attend any other fairs.
