Additional Information : These glasses were decorated by the Northwood factory after 1870 as part of their popular classical Greco-Roman range. The 'outline' which appears around the design on the foot is in actual fact residual binding material which indicates that gilt decoration had been applied - the gold has worn off, leaving its somewhat less edifying 'ghost' in situ.
