Georgian Drinking Glasses
18th and early 19th century Georgian drinking glasses are distinguished from wine glasses not only by the contents for which they were intended but also by their form.
Elegant, tall ale glasses, sturdy firing glasses and tankards , dram glasses for gin port and whisky and engraved rummers may all have distinctive shapes that are rarely shared with wine glasses from the same period.
Engraved tumblers are widely collected and much sought-after in their own right. They are pictorial snippets of history, be they Jacobite, Masonic or to commemorate an event such as a wedding or the anniversary of battle.
