These Slim Jim glasses were probably designed by Alexander Hardie-Williamson (1907 - 1994) who initially studied textile design at the Royal College of Art, London, had turned to the design of glassware in the mid-1930s.

His designs encapsulated the spirit of the era; they were stylish and fresh, bright and colourful, reflecting the mood of post-war prosperity. Hardie-Williamson’s drinking glasses were produced in a variety of shapes which were given names such as Conicals, Chubbies, Chunkies and Slim Jims.

Hardie-Williamson’s best-known design is his famous Babycham 'saucer' champagne glass.

This is a complete set of six 1950s Slim Jim glasses - decorated with a more understated abstract design.

They were made for Sherdley Glass - and pre-dates his work at Ravenshead.

They are all in excellent condition - and come with their original box - it is very rare to find the box surviving and these glasses in themselves are very collectable.

The box is in fairly good vintage condition.

Probably the delicacy of these items would mean that they could only be posted to the UK.
