Hi the green glass is I believe hand blown, it looks like the one I see on internet called Georgian 1820+ The 2nd one is 7" tall and looks like Georgian 1750+ when stems were thick, it also has imperfections very small like bumps, I want to learn about this. toracat

    Hi toracat! Look for the pontil mark. Striations in the metal, the glass are another indicator of age. The width of the foot is important too. Early ones had a foot wider than the bowl, I think.
    Check out thes sites:

    Good luck with the research. Use libraries too! I live in Sydney and the city library is a great source of specialist information.
