Found these in basement of house I rented in 1966. They appeared to have been there & abandoned quite some time previous to finding. I don't know what is served in them, but I display in china cabinet as they are very attractive. Glasses stand about 6 1/2 inches tall, glass part is about 4 1/4 inches tall & 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Looks like it holds approximately 2 oz. The silver trim on rim tarnishes easily, so I shine them up occasionally. The glass is thin & appears quite delicate. I'm interested in age & what might be served in them.

    Dorothy Thorpe made similar pieces, so may be hers. I think the pattern is called Allegra or Allegro, or something like that. You might be able to see pics at replacements.com. Good Luck!

    I think you are right about Dorothy Thorpe, Allegro pattern. No pics of cordials, but other Thorpe crystalware appears same. Thanks for help.
