Andrew Lineham and Roger Harris, two well-known London dealers in 19th and 20th century glass, are staging a selling exhibition of fine enamelled and cut drinking glasses by some of the most famous names in Europe.

These include Theresienthal, Meyr’s Neffe, Heckert and Lobmeyr. English interest is represented in this exhibition by Thomas Webb and Stevens & Williams and 1875 - 1918 is a general date guide, although there are some glasses from a later date.

This period is of great interest because the abundant skill of the glassworkers and the comparatively low wages in Europe meant that wonderful glass could be made and many new techniques developed and employed.

Changing styles and fashions influenced designs which included Belle Epoque, Art Nouveau and Fin de Siecle.

This interesting and unusual selling exhibition is for one day only at the Cambridge Glass Fair and should be an exciting opportunity for collectors to see and buy some museum-quality European glass.
