Boy it is hard to believe that I have been poking around with this blog for more than 10 years. I have no idea how many people have looked at it. Now my daily stats are pumped up by the computer bots who pop in – although heavens knows why!
I was lucky that someone asked a question about this stem. At first I thought that it had remained unidentified, but no…..it was made by Bryce Brothers and is part of their line 760-1. Don’t know if the etch was made by Bryce, but I have to surmise that it likely was.
Thanks to the viewer who asked the question that pushed me to edit this post.

I wanted to show the stem and a close view of the etch. I haven’t worked too hard to determine the provenance of this glass. There are many etches with loops, clovers, or whatever they are called. If I really wanted to find out who made this glass, I would spend time trying to determine if the stem is unique to a particular company. I only have one of these stems and I have no idea where I picked it up. I generally buy single stems of a pattern, cheaply, at a flea market or yard sale. I use them for my own beverages as I don’t mind, as much, if they get chipped in the handling. This glass has a pretty shape and a nice optic. I would bet (someone is welcome to prove me wrong) that it was made before 1938.
