Note :

English glass styles emerged in great part due to a taxation on glass – both its weight and method of decoration.  In 1777 (coincidentally during a war with the Americas), an Excise tax doubled the fee levied on colored glass, including white and colored  enamel twists that had become so popular in the 1750’s and 1760’s.  That led glassmakers to develop further yet another stem – the facet-cut stem, reflecting the taste in the very popular glass chandeliers of the period. 

These were popular c1780-1825.
