Paul Nash, resident of the Society of Industrial Aritsts from 1932-3, was one of the 'fine' artists invovled in the drive to make British design compete on an international level. The shapes of his glasses draw heavily on traditional British glass but the decoration, which included continuing the pattern across the usual distinction between stem and bowl, was distinctly 'modern'.'
