A small urn-shaped stoppered pot of frosted glass; 10cm high with a maximum diameter of 6.5cm. The shoulders of the pot body have an embossed border of petals or leaf tips, and the lid of the hollow stopper is embossed to resemble a flower head. The base is embossed REGd. No. 717747 and 5549.

(Permission for the re-use of the images on the GMB granted by Christine Gojke).

RD 717747 is not listed at http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/regnos08.htm.

The design should have been registered between September 1925 and February 1926.

Is RD 717747 in the Blue Book? If so, would some kind GMB member let me have the precise registration details, please?

Fred.

hi Fred  -  it's coupled with 717746, and was Registered to International Bottle Co., Ltd., on 12th December 1925.

No idea what 5549 means, although suspect a manufacturers pattern or design No.

I'd have said a pickle, but it looks a tad short for that  -  however, still might be  -  stopper is very typical of pickle stopper.

More likely talc or bath salts with that flowery top

Thank you, Paul and Christine.

I though that it was probably for cosmetics of some kind, and bath salts especially was likely to be in a container with a wide stoppered top rather than a screw lidded top. Perfume or other liquid would have been in a container with a much narrower stoppered neck.

Fred.

yes, I have to admit that you're both probably correct, and on reflection the satinized/frosted surface almost certainly means for cosmetics and not pickles  -  after all, you'd want to see your pickles ;)
