KITCHENALIA

Glassware was not cheap in the eighteenth century as there was no such thing as mass production.  Every piece of glass was hand made by a team (or chair) of people working in what would today be considered intolerable conditions.  For that reason it was not often used for utilitarian objects that would not be seen by guests.  Kitchenalia made of Georgian glass is therefore typically seen in the jelly and syllabub glasses, egg cups, cruets and other objects that were used to serve up food.
