GLASS SOCIETY -Lecture 'In Search of British Seventeenth-Century Glass' by Colin Brain. Tuesday 10th December 2019.

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, 10. December 2019 - 18:30
The Artworkers Guild 6 Queen Square London WC1N 3AT

This talk is about the fun of researching and collecting drinking glasses dating from the period 1662-1702, and about some of the people, like Robert Charleston and David Watts, who provided help and encouragement.  In particular, Colin will discuss his efforts to rely less on stylistic attributions in favour of more objective measures such as density and UV-fluorescence.
