Additional Information : Lynn glass is a generic term for 18th glassware which is identified by this sort of horizontal banding. It’s a simply-applied ornamentation, which is also regularly referred to as “Lynn moulding” in spite of actually being a tooled finish rather than one which is moulded in any way.
