TOASTMASTER DECEPTIVE GLASS

£10.50

TOASTMASTER DECEPTIVE GLASS

Trumpet bowl above central knop with tear and foot. Handblown with glass imperfections; bubble inclusions, crack and scratch on the base.

Toastmaster’s glass, English glass about the size of an ordinary drinking glass but with only about one-quarter of its capacity; the glass creates the illusion of being full by means of a depression in its bowl, which in fact is almost solid. It owed its origin to the clubs of 18th-century England, where the toastmaster had to remain sober enough to carry out his office.

Height: 4”

Base diameter: 2”

Lip diameter: 2”
