  • Interesting pair of 19th Century Honeycomb goblets.  The pattern was popular in eateries and taverns during the 1850s - 1880s.
  • Seemingly identical in appearance at first glance, each has subtle differences.  The larger has crisp edges on the pattern and a rounded bowl, while the smaller was taken from an older mold and the pattern edges are soft with a non-rounded bowl.  Both show traces of two mold lines.  The smaller goblet's lines vere in a slight twist near the stem.  The larger goblet's lines are straight. The larger goblet has a faint tint of purple, the smaller has not been effected by ultraviolet light and is clear white. Both have medium weight solid rings of bottom-wear. Both light-up under blacklight, the smaller reflecting less intensely.
  • The timeless Honeycomb pattern was produced by many glassmakers from all over the world.  In America, the New England Glass Company is well know for it's production in clear flint beginning in the 1950s.  The pattern was so popular that most early glassmakers provided a range.
  • The larger measures 4 7/8" tall, the smaller is 3 7/8" tall.  The larger has a 10-sided column stem. The smaller's columns are nearly obscured by the soft mold lines, but there are 10. 
  • Both in very good condition.  The large is near perfect with a few miniscule flea bites on the upper pattern edges.  The small goblet has a few more flea bites but the are very tiny. Hard to feel. Must look closely to see.  A small trapped air bubble left by the maker resides in the smaller goblet's foot.
