I have written this blog mainly through my interest of Stuart crystal. After being at home with my daughter I started to use my computer more often and I started selling my stuff on eBay which lead me to buying Stuart crystal from the art deco period with the Stratford rings. After searching the web for more information on this style I found there is not much information around. So I started to write this site which includes pictures of my collection and some of my other interests. As I collect more I will be adding other pictures as well (I'm sure other designs will creep in).
I have had several questions regarding the value of Stuart Crystal glasses, I'm sorry I am unable to give valuations as I am a private collector, and I do not have that knowlege. I have picked Stuart glasses up from as little as 20p up to a few pounds So they are worth whatever people are prepared to pay!
So I hope you enjoy reading my site, find some of my posts interesting and the pictures are a useful reference.
This is a spectacular item, This dish is unmarked (There are a couple of bubbles in the glass I'm assuming that's why it isn't marked), I'm sure its a Stuart. It has the Stuart stepped rings (Stratford), also a ground pontil. Most likely there were originally six sundae dishes that accompanied it. It was a real find at a car boot for next to nothing (lucky for me a great item for my collection).
It stands 14cm and is 19.5 cm wide across the rim.
This glass is slightly different in size from the other ones I have. It has a straight stem.
