THE GLASS OF STUART CRYSTAL

Stuart Crystal has a bit of staid foggey image, kind of good quality but not very funky. Before WWII they were modern, producing convincing art deco designs, but after the war they seemed to have lost it sunk back to traditional pastiche designs. I would be happy to be proved wrong, however, the bulk of the later stuff I see that is made by them seems to fit that mould.

There is a nice little precis of the history of Stuart Crystal at this web site:

I have sufficient Stuart Crystal glass to have a section on decanters, on tableware, and on a couple of the patterns, first starting with the ubiquitous Stratford Pattern.
