St John's Glass, Isle of Man

The following piece has been attributed to St John's Glass, Isle of Man, because of the accompanying certificate and box bearing that company's name. We would like to thank Ron Wheeler of Artius Glass who has investigated the matter (2018). Apparently, any piece having the flame pontil mark on the base was not made by St. John's Glass but made by IOWSG during the early years of an arrangement made between the two companies. St John's Glass was never supplied with the embossing ‘Flame Logo’ tool and so it is not possible that glass thus marked was made there. The tool was only supplied to Kerry Glass. The label/leaflet and box was also supplied by IOWSG.
