THIS is a set of six silver wine goblets of 17th century style upon knopped
stems and moulded bases, cased.
Examples from earlier in the century tend to be hand blown with the same variety of stems as drinking glasses - knopped
, with or without tears (air bubbles), and with both air and opaque twists.
Another walking cane from the George V period with an ivory knop carved as a duck and silver collar, hallmarked London 1928 on an ebony shaft, made pounds 114, but a 19th-century carved whalebone and ivory-mounted walking cane of tapering knopped
design caused a mild sensation on the day.
