Georgian refers to the English art and culture produced during this era. Historical events in France, Germany, and Italy also influenced Georgian jewelry motifs and designs.

Timber windows in England have been around for hundreds of years. The sliding box sash window originates in 17th Century London. It is a common misconception that sash windows were an imported design, but in fact the sash windows you see abroad are exported and you can find them in colonised countries across the world including India, the Caribbean and America. The design of the sash window comes from a time when streets were narrow and windows jutting out could have touched the building opposite or blocked the path of a thatcher.
This predates the vertical sash window and was a common feature across the country.

Much has been written about Baluster glasses and their evolution – mostly repeated from publications that are now between 50 and years out of date. Over the years I have been very fortunate to have been in frequent contact with several eminent researchers and writers on the subject of early English glass and its development. This has allowed me to keep abreast of the latest information – knowledge that I am always pleased to share with those of similar interests.
As the 17 th century progressed towards its end the uniquely English Balusters began to appear. Makers discovered that the slower cooling and therefore more workable lead metal lent itself perfectly to the creation of the many wonderful heavier and stronger, boldly knopped Baluster glasses that are much admired and collected today. The knopping of Balusters began with an inversion of the simple architectural feature the Baluster column widening at its base.
From the s we begin to see the many and varied knops that we now know, starting with the inverted baluster and quickly followed by the acorn and mushroom, the angular and annular and the true baluster along with the great rarities of today: the Egg and the Cylinder. It was also at this time that various foot forms were introduced including the domed, domed and folded, terraced and the rare beehive foot.
These, along with the standard conical which could be plain or folded, added much more variety than had been previously available. Most forms of glass can be found in the baluster period; cordials, wines, sweetmeats, drams, ales and of course wonderful goblets all of which are a delight to both the eye and the hand – being very tactile and superb to use today by the careful collector.
All the major knop varieties are contained in the Adamson collection and new glasses will be offered regularly. Plain stems perhaps need little explanation. The huge variety of plain stem vessels with almost all bowl types and foot variations can be a very satisfying area for collectors of these iconic English antique drinking glasses – which are anything but plain.

Georgian drinking glasses are but one expression of 18th century English technical and artistic achievement. Their relative weight and thickness, and the peculiar gleam of the glass itself are innate characteristics of these beautiful vessels. Collectors particularly value them for their great variety of shapes and decorations. Despite the apparent fragility of glassware, Georgian drinking glasses have survived in great enough numbers to be avidly collected today.
Although some are extremely rare and therefore expensive, there are plenty of people who sell Georgian drinking glasses and many beautiful and interesting examples can still be found for quite reasonable prices. Before the end of the 17th century, drinking glasses and glassware were expensive and exclusive luxuries. In refined and wealthy circles, wine, ale, spirits and cordials were drunk from delicate and finely blown glasses that had either been imported from Venice or made elsewhere in Europe by Italian craftsmen.
These early drinking glasses were made of soda glass. This was a mixture of soda and silica and the glassware that resulted had a slightly dirty tinge. Italy practically controlled the monopoly for its manufacture. From the late 17th century, however, England began to rival Italy as an important centre of glass making. In George Ravenscroft, an English glass-maker, patented a new kind of glass.
This was known as lead glass, and contained both lead and silica. By comparison to the normal soda glass, it was exceptionally clear.
