An infamous book, the library copy at Oxford University bears a label stating: Use with caution, contains many factual errors. The author was an antique glass dealer and at the time of the scandal denied wrongdoing but admitted to owning old Irish glass moulds. There was much speculation that she had some antique glasses with engravings in the old style. She was reputed to have a glassworks in France producing Lalique type glass and from 1925-36 set up and ran a glassworks in Battersea, London, known as Gray-Stan producing original designs.

Nonetheless, a delightful small book to read.
