Mrs Armsby then welcomed Mr Keith Lawrence, our favourite antiques expert. This time he had brought along 16 English drinking glasses for us to identify from a written list of names. These varied from a penny lick & custard glass , to deceptive & jelly glasses. We all had a go at sorting out which was which, then keith gave us the correct answers, and told us a bit about each one. Dates ranged from the 1700’s to 1980, and values from £10 to £200 each. He was thanked by Carol Thulbourne, and presented with a Waitrose voucher.
