Roy, you are entirely welcome!

now, on to Bernard C:  There was an open salt collector in England by the name of Linda Kelsey, who passed away from cancer about a year or so ago.  She was known to be very informative about english glass salts and english glass in general and lived in the Dudley/Stourbridge region of UK.  she provided this info that I ran in the July 2004 GLOWING REPORT.  You might know of Ronald Beck (I have not had the acquaintance yet).  Anyway, this is what was written:  Linda Kelsey wants to set the record straight!  Ever since Bill Edwards' book (Ency. of Opalescent Glass) came out, people have been calling this pattern WAVES, because Edwards decided to name a piece that already had a name.  Kelsey, who lives in the Dudley/Stourbridge region of England, was informed by Ronald Beck (a collector of Walsh Walsh/Powell/Whitefriars) that the real pattern name is MINSTER KEY.  It was made by John Walsh Walsh and is s highly desirable pattern.  The article then shows a picture contributed by Linda, showing the water pitcher.  If anyone can shed light on this, please chime in.

That's the one thing that drives me mad about Bill Edwards' book! :(  He just gives things any name he fancies, because he doesn't happen to know what they were called by the makers!  Aaaarrrrgghhh  >:( >:( >:(

OK, rant over!  :-[ :-X

Seriously though, it's very nice to be able to 'listen in' on you lot - the people I consider to be the 'Big Boys' of vaseline glass!   :-*

Dave:

The triangular berry bowl is one of Gillinder's versions of the D&B pattern which they called "Triangle" amazingly enough!

I have seen a vaseline item similar to your Walsh Bowl, similar in colour but not sure if the pattern was the same or even if made by Walsh, it was a large Salad Bowl with a silver rim and a pair of matching salad servers with the vaseline handles although they were priced at £275.00, I also found this Heart shape creamer on ebay completed sold as Hobbs 150097799401

I trust your ID 100% to ID all my items off the top of your head is amazing, all the makers you have named are completely new to me except for Gillinder's as I know they made a glass shoe around 1870's, I think I have learnt alot today , glad I do not find too much American pressed glass in the UK as it seems to be a bit of a mine field

I am just glad you find a lot of good vaseline/primrose pearline over there for us glassaholics on this side of the pond.  Dave
