OTHER FORMS

18th century Georgian glass houses were always on the look out for more ways to extend the medium and create new products.  This category includes all glass objects and drinking glasses that do not easily fit into the stem classifications used to differentiate 18th century Georgian glasses.  Objects as varied as breast pumps, nipple guards, goldfish bowls, leech jars, pharmacy equipment, tazzas, comports, novelty glasses and tankards were all made in large quantities.  Glasses such as the boot glass shown on the right were initially made to poke fun at the Earl of Bute, Prime Minister of Great Britain between 1762 and 1763.
