CONTINENTAL GLASSWARE

While most UK collectors concentrate on English, Scottish and Irish 18th century Georgian blown glass, we have to accept that some of the greatest glasses of the 18th century came out of Europe, in particular Germany, the Czech Republic (Bohemia), the Netherlands and Belgium.  Indeed many of the bell bowl colour twists, previously thought to be of domestic manufacture are now thought to have been made in the Low Countries, as were some of the light balusters.  It is also true that engraving on glass reached its zenith in the18th century and that British engravers could not match the excellence of our European cousins.  This section features some of those 18th century Georgian Continental glasses.   The glass shown on the right is a Bohemian goblet and cover with a red enamel glass twisted stem.  For more information on Georgian Continental glassware try reading "European Glass from 1500-1800" by Klesse Mayr.  For more in depth study you will need to read books on the glassware from specific countries.
