Peter Dreiser MBE (1936 – 2006) was widely regarded as Britain’s finest wheel engraver and this goblet is a prime example of his craftsmanship.  Born in Germany, where he learned his craft at a school set up by the best Bohemian glass engravers, Dreiser moved to London in 1955 where he set up a glass workshop in an existing glass factory.  After undertaking a variety of roles, he was offered a post as engraver at the highly respected Mayfair store of Thomas Goode and later set up his own freelance workshop and received commissions from the Bank of England, the Royal College of Physicians, the Church Commissioners and the Prince of Wales, being invited to produce 100 glasses for the investiture in 1969.  As well as producing pieces for the Queen herself, he was often asked to make pieces for the Queen to present to visiting foreign dignitaries.  He also taught the art of glass engraving at Morley College, Lambeth and went on to become Vice-President of the Guild of Glass Engravers and an honorary liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Glass Sellers.  Examples of his work are to be found in museum collections including the Victoria & Albert, the Fitzwilliam and the Corning Museum of Glass in New York.
