English drinking glasses have a long collecting pedigree. Certain types have been sought out for many centuries as ceremonial accoutrements, but the idea of collecting them as objects of antique interest goes back at least to the 19th century. By , the antiquarian Albert Hartshorne had published Old English Glasses: An account of glass drinking vessels in England, from early times to the end of the eighteenth century. This seminal work provided the first attempt at classification of 18th century glasses, the sector which makes up the biggest slice of this particular market. Up to the mids, English glasses, like their Continental counterparts, were made of soda glass producing thinly constructed, lightweight vessels of fluid design. The patenting by George Ravenscroft in his London Savoy workshop of glass made with lead oxide produced a much heavier, clearer product that responded well to cutting and engraving. From a luxury product for the very rich, glass gradually became more widely produced and affordable. It is for this reason that a volume of 18th century material has survived.

Timber windows in England have been around for hundreds of years. The sliding box sash window originates in 17th Century London. It is a common misconception that sash windows were an imported design, but in fact the sash windows you see abroad are exported and you can find them in colonised countries across the world including India, the Caribbean and America. The design of the sash window comes from a time when streets were narrow and windows jutting out could have touched the building opposite or blocked the path of a thatcher.

This predates the vertical sash window and was a common feature across the country. The sliding sash window came to the fore after the great fire of London English Baroque, as the period became known, was responsible for many architectural masterpieces built with sliding sash windows, such as the remodelled Hampton Court See pictures , Greenwich and Kensington Palaces. The actual design of the counter balanced window has not been attributed to any one person or any single geographical area.

It is commonly accepted that the vertical sliding sash window was probably held open with wooden wedges and then this developed into a counter balanced idea, handmade lead weights held on twine rope. Our fitting teams have come across some of these old weights and straggles of rope whilst removing some very old windows in listed buildings.

Borjomi (water)

All rights reserved. Georgians are rightly proud of their rich and historic winemaking culture, and as traditional methods enjoy a renaissance, the qvevri – an earthenware vessel used to store and age wine for thousands of years – is becoming the unofficial symbol of the country, found on everything from tea towels to t-shirts. A relatively small producer, Georgia exports wine worldwide, and sales have been growing rapidly, particularly in the US.

However, like most countries, it keeps the best bottles for itself and visiting its restaurants and vineyards is by far the best way to appreciate this fine art. These early Georgians discovered grape juice could be turned into wine by burying it underground for the winter. Some of the qvevris they were buried in could remain underground for up to 50 years.

Georgian drinking glasses are but one expression of 18th century English technical and artistic achievement. Their relative weight and thickness, and the peculiar gleam of the glass itself are innate characteristics of these beautiful vessels. Collectors particularly value them for their great variety of shapes and decorations.

Despite the apparent fragility of glassware, Georgian drinking glasses have survived in great enough numbers to be avidly collected today. Although some are extremely rare and therefore expensive, there are plenty of people who sell Georgian drinking glasses and many beautiful and interesting examples can still be found for quite reasonable prices. Before the end of the 17th century, drinking glasses and glassware were expensive and exclusive luxuries.

In refined and wealthy circles, wine, ale, spirits and cordials were drunk from delicate and finely blown glasses that had either been imported from Venice or made elsewhere in Europe by Italian craftsmen. These early drinking glasses were made of soda glass. This was a mixture of soda and silica and the glassware that resulted had a slightly dirty tinge. Italy practically controlled the monopoly for its manufacture.

From the late 17th century, however, England began to rival Italy as an important centre of glass making. In George Ravenscroft, an English glass-maker, patented a new kind of glass.

The water rises to the surface without pumping and is transported by pipes to two bottling plants in the town of Borjomi. The Borjomi springs were discovered by the Imperial Russian military in the s. They were made famous throughout the Russian Empire, making Borjomi a popular tourist destination. The history of the brand is closely associated with the Russian imperial dynasty of Romanov. After the Russian Revolution of and subsequent Soviet takeover of Georgia, the Borjomi enterprise was nationalized and the water was made into a top Soviet export.

Borjomi is exported to over 40 countries. Inna and her family retain a substantial interest in the business. The use of Borjomi water has been suggested by the Georgian and Russian researchers for complex treatment of several digestive diseases and diabetes mellitus. The mineral springs of the Borjomi valley were discovered over one thousand years ago. In , when the Imperial Russian Army Kherson Grenadier Regiment was deployed in Borjomi for operations against the Ottoman Empire , Russian soldiers found mineral springs on the right bank of Borjomi river.

Intrigued by the find, Colonel Pavel Popov, the commander of the regiment, ordered that the springs be cleaned and that the water be bottled and transported to the military base. Popov, who suffered from stomach disease tried the water first. Seeing positive results, he ordered the construction of rock walls around the spring and he had a bath house built nearby, along with a small cottage house for himself.

Golovin also expedited the official transfer of the waters from the military to civil authorities.

The first ‘crystal chandeliers’ were metal and wire frames decorated with rock crystal beads and rosettes. It was not until the Georgian era, that developments in glass technology meant an arm could be fashioned from glass that was strong enough to hold some weight. As the designs improved, the crystal chandelier became highly fashionable. Candles and glass were very expensive and highly taxed which made chandeliers the ultimate status symbol. Social changes meant that the long held tradition of lunchtime dinning was substituted, at least by the upper classes, to evening dinner parties which required lighting.

The poor quality of the candle light available made glass and mirrors the perfect addition to increase the light in a glamorous room. A wealthy Georgian homeowner would often burn hundreds of candles during a dinner party, but may well be found reading by a fire and burning a cheaper, tallow candle, once the guests had left! The style and design of crystal chandeliers continued to change with the development of new techniques.

A metal frame supports crystal chains which run the length of the chandelier.
