These Slim Jim glasses were 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 group of five Slim Jim glasses - I am not sure of the official design name of these - but I call them Little Miss Muffet Designs - they feature on each a matching image of a little girl wearing a mop cap - and she has been dusting - she has a big red feather duster - and all over the place there are little spiders webs - she is in a loft environment - as there is a big old gramophone with horn speaker - and a cage with a little escaped mouse - and an old grandfather clock... a very quirky pattern to put on a set of glasses

Each glass is about 14 cm (5 1/2 inches) in height - with a diameter of about 5cm (2 1/4 inches).

The price here is for the FIVE shown in my photographs.

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