What Is It?:
Try and get your head around this ...
You’ll go to top of the glass if you can guess this one
Among the antiques and delightfully odd bits and pieces lining the shelves and tables of The Drill Hall in New Norfolk, was this little glass vessel.
The item, made in England in the early 1900s, resembles an egg cup or a small chalice.
However, the narrow, almondshaped opening at the top could not fit an egg, and may make drinking a little awkward.
The dark blue colour may have more to do with the use of the item, rather than aesthetic.
The cobalt blue glass has a trademark stamp in the bottom, a ‘W’ outlined in a rectangular box.
Maybe you know what this interesting little cup is, or maybe you have used one yourself.
