- This V-shaped glass with pouring lip and foot was designed for chemical experiments. The form, sometimes termed a graduated measure glass, is associated with Thomas Clark (1801-1867), a Scotsman who, in 1833, became professor of chemistry at Marischal College in Aberdeen. The sides of this example are graduated to 1 oz. and 8 drams.
