The design pattern for having sets of wine and drinking glasses of the same rudimentary form with incrementally reduced capacity first started in the late 19th century. Trade advertisements distinguish between white and red wine glasses. Bucket and double ogee bowls were fashionable during the first quarter of the century. So where are the bucket bowl wine glasses ? They are nowadays referred to as rummers.

Most glasses of this specific form are decorated with bands of fine diamonds set between prismatic cuts. Some may be Irish but when the cutting is of this standard it was most likely to have been made in the North West of England.
