I have attached two bibliographies related to goblets, a technique-based guide and a more general goblets guide (there is some overlap). I also attached a bibliography on 18th century glass production, which may give you more information about glass being produced at that time. If you are interested in borrowing any of the materials, our library participates in Interlibrary Loan. Your library can contact us through OCLC or they may send an Interlibrary Loan form to us by e-mail. We send copies of articles and will also loan certain books if a second copy is available in the library collection. Books are loaned for a four week period. For further information, please see our ILL page.
I asked our Curator of European and Asian Glass, Dr. Audrey Whitty, for suggestions, and she recommended looking into the publications listed at the bottom of the object record ("More info" is selected - it looks like a button, but functions like a tab) - they are "publications in which this object is mentioned or closely related to works discussed therein."
I did not find any "definitive" sources online, but there are a number of videos and web pages that relate to blowing glass goblets. Using terms such as "goblets," "goblet making," "glassblowing," and "technique" in different combinations produce some potentially helpful results, including a number of videos showing goblets made with historic techniques.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
