Dating of our glass:

The Georgian period covers the years 1714-1830, including the Regency, 1811-1820, during which the first four Georges reigned as Kings of England.

During this time the English became famous for the excellence of their "glass of lead". Invented by George Ravenscroft in the late 17th century, it took over in favour from Venetian soda glass which had dominated the European market for centuries.

After the short reign of William IV in the 1830s, the Victorian period runs to the early twentieth century, followed by the Edwardian.
