This is a Whitefriars tumbler designed by Barnaby Powell 1870-1900, the colour is call straw opal. This design of glass with the dimples in are following a Roman fashion for such glasses that Barnaby Powell was fond of, many of his designs following those of what was being found in archaeological excavations of the time. It is 4 inches tall.
