Jelly glass

The thistle-shaped bowl has a wrythen base supported on a short stem and slightly domed foot. Thistle-shaped glasses have a waisted bowl of which the lower half is hemispherical and above it the funnel shape represents the thistle flower. The hemispherical part of the bowl is sometimes diamond-cut. In this instance, the design is wrythen. The style also owes something to Continental design (Venice); wine glasses with similarly based ornament but of far greater sophistication.

Sugar Crusher

A short glass rod, usually about 10 cm. in length, with a round pestle-like knop at one end and usually a pressed decorative motif at the other. The crusher has three ridges in the knop surface, possibly intentional to help crush the sugar. The stem is plain with the end drawn out to form a leaf shape, with indented lines representing the veins. The tip of the "leaf" is rough and left unpolished.

Sugar Crusher

A short glass rod, usually about 10 cm in length, with a round pestle-like knop at one end and usually a pressed decorative motif at the other. The crusher has a small knop, a double-twisted stem, the last twist having been expanded and flattended with a glass-blowers tool to form a handle. Of particular interest is the pestle-like end, which is slightly abraded, indicating use in crushing the sugar in individual drinks.

Sweetmeat glass

The bowl, in shape owing something to both round funnel and ovid forms, is supported on a moulded Silesian stem with a domed and folded foot. The plain level rim of the bowl makes the glass suitable as a drinking vessel. This style has sometimes been mistakenly identified as a champagne glass.

Sweetmeat glass

The cut-glass bowl has a scalloped rim, with an engraved combined band of tulips and ovals below. The flute-cut stem has a domed foot. In comparison to wine glass stems the sweetmeat stem became more elaborate towards the end of the 18th century, with knops, air and opaque twists and, as in this instance, cutting.
