Cut crystal/glass Gorham?

Post by Redware on May 8th 2013, 7:55 pm

Hi Guys, I've recently bought 6 very nice glasses. They seem to be of a decent quality but until now I was unable to identify either the pattern or the maker. Most likely it is crystal as rings nicely when tapped.
The glasses are 5 3/4'' tall and 3 3/4'' (7 cm) in diameter at the rim (6 cm at the base). They are not round at the rim but start to go dodecagonal (shape made of 12 walls) from about 1 1/2'' from the rim.

Thanks

Simon

They might be lead glass (crystal) but there looks to be a seam in some of the photos, making them moulded rather than handcut. I don't know if Gorham do moulded glass, if not then they would be by another maker.

Thanks Naomi,
Just had a closer look and I think that you're right there is a seam, hardly visible but it is there. Any ideas where to look to get the correct id?
Thank you
Simon
