As I love English glass, this appealed to me . It came in the holder shown but I know it does not belong. Why put something with feet in a holder that probably required glass with a rigaree or made to sit secure in the frame.
The holder was made by Sanders & Aquilar 1898-1903 and they worked in London and Birmingham. It looks more like it was meant to be a holder for something like a sugar bowl. It is 15 1/2 cm from handle to handle, 9 1/4 cm to the top of the handle. The glass 10 1/2 w x 7 1/2 cm high.
The glass. British I think and the style with the feet like that I believe is called rustic. Any thoughts on the manufacturer? Does it conform to a known maker or colour or the way it was made. ? I hope maybe to pin age and possible maker down with the help of everyone here.
