Customer Question

I am trying to identify the maker of an antique goblet that belong to my family. I has a smooth inside and a ribbed or threaded glass around the outside. the stem has a twisted design inside the stem. I have taken it to an antique dealer and they could not identify the maker but suggested it was a very fine work of art, most likely a prominate maker from England and considered to be old. Can you help identify the maker?

Hello, May I know why this has been attributed to an American maker? ~Nora
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Where did I say it was attributed to an American maker? I have no idea who made it. An antique dealer thought it was English
Expert:  Nora replied 12 months ago.
That was a typo, I intended to write English maker.

I wish I could provide additional information but all that is know is that it was part of my mother's estate and family assumed it to be old.

Hi, There are many possibilities to who could have made this, when, and where. I can provide an estimate of value based on the style and craftsmanship, however I cannot definitively identify a maker of this unmarked goblet. Please let me know how you would like to proceed from here. ~Nora

I am not as interested in value as I am in who the goblet was attributed to. Obviously the maker is what determines the value. What would be your best evaluations as to possible makers?

I will not be able to respond back after opting-out I do hope you find the information that you seek. ~Nora
