On offer here is a SINGLE Edinburgh Crystal Glass - it is a shape for smaller cocktails, sherbert or perhaps for drinking toasts with champagne or sparkling wines.
This is a particularly nice glass with a slightly flared bowl and a little oval-shaped knop halfway down the stem.
I love the finely engraved grapes and vine leaves around the rim. Below is a beautiful cut diamond thumbprints pattern - these glasses are now getting rarer and harder to find - the pattern is now discontinued and no longer made.
I have a total of five of these glasses available - but just so there is no confusion the price here is for ONE GLASS.
They are a rarer slightly larger size - each glass is 5 1/8 inches in height. The top has a diameter of 3 1/8 inches and the foot is 2 5/8 inches.
HAPPY TO POST INTERNATIONALLY, PLEASE ASK FOR A POSTAGE QUOTE OUTSIDE OF THE UK
They date from the 1950s or 1960s
They are in just lovely condition with no damages of any kind.
Postage here is with the Royal Mail and good postage discounts would apply for more than one glass.
The Edinburgh and Leith Flint Glassworks was established in the 1860's at Leith Walk Glassworks and later at Norton Park in Edinburgh.
In 1921 the glassworks became part of Webbs Crystal Glass Company.
In 1955, The Edinburgh and Leith Glassworks became Edinburgh Crystal, and the next decade saw further expansion and eventually the demolition of the old glassworks at Norton Park and new premises at Penicuik 10 miles south of Edinburgh.
Edinburgh Crystal went into administration in July 2006. Although the brand was taken over by the Waterford / Wedgwood Group the factory no longer exists and the brand is now discontinued.
