Tony & Frank,
Yes it is Walsh / Farquharson / Leaf
pattern. It is not illustrated in the pattern book reproduced in Reynolds, but a little detective work shows it to be one of a number of glasses listed as pattern A5883, dating to c. 1937â€“38, as it is just 23 patterns on from the last of the Walsh George VI Coronation commemoratives (Edward VIII abdication broadcast 12 December 1936 â€“ Coronation 12 May 1937). Quite a late pattern for Leaf
, launched PG February 1936.
The list with "SELLS" price is:
Champ Tall 9
Champ Low 78
Â¼pt Tum 57/-
Â½pt Tum 66/-
Ice Plate 101
B. Dec 27/6
Spirit Dec A5765 16/9
, Blackburn[/list]Indistinct lettering in blue. The "SELLS" price is presumably trade ex-factory gate. I am not sure whether for a dozen or half-dozen glasses. The Blackburn company could be either a retailer or a wholesaler.
I am certain that your glass is what is listed as a Goblet
. The high price would be justified by the size and the complex stem with what looks like a cut knop.
I am sure that Eric Reynolds would appreciate a copy of your photographs.
Nice find â€” well spotted.
