Description:

Forty-one Pieces of Cowdy Glass Workshop Stemware, England, c. 1990, eight cordials, nineteen sherries, a wine, and thirteen waters, in solid pink and pink twist stem designs, most with maker's labels, ht. 4, 5, 6 1/2, 7 in.

Note: Cowdy Glass Workshop produced contemporary glassware with an accent on color. Resident designer Pauline Solven achieved international recognition for her own studio glass work, and her production designs received Britain's Design Council Award. Cowdy's glassblowers fashioned the molten glass by combining the traditional skills of the glassmaker with the new techniques of studio glass. Each piece is made and fully finished while it is hot producing a very strong rim resistant to chipping.
Estimate $20-200
