    Hi all I'm new here and have just had a lovely exchange on the jewellery area about some beads so I wondered if someone might now be able to help me with a glass I bought for 50p. I love it so much and have a thing for glass. I suspect it's very old (Georgian) but can't afford the bible on glass identification (currently around £200). Any help much appreciated. I have others that I'd love to get help on too. All of them found in various charity shops. I spend my time watching YouTube videos on glass identification. To say I'm obsessed is an understatement. Thank you so much

    Thank you! Can anyone help in telling me the age and type of glass? Much appreciated. I think it's Georgian.

    Hm. Nice airtwist stem. Colour doesn't look Georgian and I'd have said a bit too much capacity for it, either. The foot isn't folded.

    Yes, the foot on a piece of glass old enough to be called Georgian would have a folded under rim. Also it would be "water white", colorless.

    Love the color. Latticino stem says Italy to me. Nothing says Georgian loud enough for me to hear.

    Or water grey, much Geogian glass has a slight tinge. Bronwen, we did make those latticino style airtwists here. Facon de venise.

    The stems on the older ones are much thicker and not shaped.

    Ok thanks. The later georgian I know had no folded foot. It was the base being wider than the stem and the very sharp / rough pontil mark lent me towards an older (late Georgian) piece. Thank you

    I do have that book though I'm certain I didn't pay as much as that. Perhaps because mine is a withdrawn library book.

    The photos are all black and white. If it helps there are only two pages with coloured glass with only this page at all close.
