Fold over rims are usually associated with Irish origins despite the fact that they were deployed by English glass houses in the early 19th century. The cutting is too elaborate and complex to be Irish in origin. The cutting shops in Warrington, Widnes and Manchester produced the most oustanding cut glass in the early 19th century.

We have two examples both of almost indentical size (within 2mm height) and weight. The cutting on both adheres to the same design. Both have been restored to the same exemplary standard. They display superbly well and are the most magnificent pieces of Georgian Regency cut glass tableware that we have offered for sale
