Two Mid-Range Glass Makers' Best Attempts at Luxury
Bryce Brothers Water Goblet, 7", pattern #625-2 c.1935
With a similar shape, this goblet by Duncan Miller takes the refinement a step further. Like others, they incorporated the mold lines into the pattern. They are absolutely invisible on this superior piece. One senses that they are along the points in the flute cut collars surrounding the central lapidary knob in the stem. This goblet is more substantial than the Bryce with better heft and balance. The blanks may be Heisey.
Duncan & Miller Water Goblet, "Stratford" stem #504 cut #689, 7.375" c. 1940
