Whitefriars style Harlequin Tumblers 100_0030

it has been brought to my attention that these may not be Whitefriars.

perhaps we could have a debate?

They're not Whitefriars production - they've been discussed at some length both on the GMB and on Whitefriars.com and as far as I know and believe they're by Ingrid Glas (Austria).

I had a shorter set of these - whisky glass size - that I sold emphatically as NOT Whitefriars. Every time the buyers mentioned them afterwards they called them Whitefriars.

Sometimes you can't win.

A new possibility - my neighbour, I've discovered, has a set of these in whiskey-tumbler size that was bought whilst holidaying in Italy about 35 years ago.

Of course, just because they were bought there, it doesn't mean they were made there!

Hi Taylor - NONE of the glasses are Whitefriars - it's already been established at the top of the thread.
