Roach Smith 1849, 385:The glass tumbler and copper bowl, of which Mr. Fairholt will exhibit drawings, were dug up last week [in 1849], and fell immediately into the possession of Mr. Reader, of Sandwich, one of our associates. It was stated they were found, with another glass vessel which was broken, by people digging gravel, but no particulars as to their position in the ground, or whether they were alone or with other remains, could be procured. Even the precise locality could not be ascertained. From Douglas and Boys, and from discoveries made since the days of those careful observers, we are well certified that the Saxon remains from Ash, Gilton, and the neighbourhood, have been procured from burial-places; from one of which we my be assured the tumbler and basin under consideration were procured.Mayer card: Bronze pan, c. 14 inches diam. Mr Akerman says [Archaeologia 30, page 133] that this specimen was found with the Anglo-Saxon glass engraved in Remains of Pagan Saxondom. Ex. Rolfe Collection.
