My latest glass purchase - 2 matching, 'tulip' engraved, faceted stemmed, small funnel wine glasses on conical feet with a sharp pontil mark, dating from around 1790-1800. They arrived today.
Now I have about 12 of these type of glasses, which - considering that we never really have more than about 4 people round for dinner in one go - maybe superfluous, but these are a bit too small for ordinary wine, so I'm going to use them for pudding wine, like Muscat.
I've never paid more than £25 each for this sort of glass, and they sell in dealer's shops for about £70. I paid £29 for the pair, so I am quite pleased. They are in perfect condition.
By this time next week, I hope to have an enormous wine glass dating from around 1750 (almost 9 inches high) which I intend to use myself! We'll see. I'll show you a picture if I get it.
Sorry, I am gloating - it's an illness.
