18th Century and Georgian Glass

After Flint glass, or lead glass, was introduced by George Ravenscroft at the end of the 17th Century it bought a new style of table glass and thus a new collecting area. A genuinely accessible market, with current values a good clean glass of the period does not have to cost a fortune.

Differing decorations and configurations to bowl, stem and foot both elude to the pieces age and popularity. Key favourites being Air Twists, Colour Twists, Jacobite and Beilby glasses.

However, if the quantity of these early vessels is not quite going to cut it a late Georgian Rummer may be more suited to you. These glasses used by the gentlemen after dinner when the ladies had departed offer a more modern capacity twinned with a wonderful history.
