Additional Information : See ‘Irish Glass by Phelps Warren‘.  This fine antique Irish glass can be attributed Cork as the cutting characteristics suggest, note the alternate prisms to the inverted rim and the large hollow facets to the body. In particular this piece exhibits the style of ‘soft’, flat cutting associated with Cork Glass Co. See pages 187 & 124/125 plate 86.
