Guest Book
This robust, two piece glass is made with lovely grey tinted metal. It is almost unique in the roll call of English glass styles. Its generous proportions and reassuring weight (just under1lb) are difficult to convey through the medium of photography. The ogee bowl (nearing a pan-top) is engraved with a fruiting vine border and is supported on a drawn plain tapering stem standing on substantial conical folded foot.

Height: Just over 7 inches;
Bowl diameter: 2¼ inches;
Foot diameter: 3¾ inches.

Although the bowl rim is slightly wavy in places and the engraving is very close to the edge the existence of a continuous bead around the rim supports the assertion that this glass has not been tampered with.

We have found only one reference to a glass similar this one. It is illustrated in W A Thorpe's A History of English and Irish glass plate XCV fig, 2
