KITCHENALIA

Glassware was not cheap in the eighteenth century as there was no such thing as mass production.  Every piece of 18th century Georgian glass was hand made by a team (or chair) of people working in what would today be considered intolerable working conditions.  Even utilitarian products such as those made for the kitchen or for presenting food to guests was looked after, and accounts for the amount of kitchen glass available today.  Kitchenalia made of 18th century Georgian glass is seen in the jelly and syllabub glasses, egg cups, cruets and other objects that were used to serve up food as well as in objects that were used to prepare it, such as the pestle and mortar that can be seen in the picture on the right.
