Footnotes

  • Although neither goblet is signed it is clear from the engraving that stylistically the work is that of Thomas Hudson of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. A goblet with a portrait of a racehorse and jockey, signed by Hudson and also bearing a coin dated 1838, is to be found in Broadfield House Glass Museum - see Leach (1990). It is most unusual and rare to find the traditional broader bucket-bowl rummer developed into a tall goblet, presumably to accommodate the figurative image
