The registration was not in Class 4 ( Wholly or partly glass or pottery) so is therefore most likely for the decoration design, another one for design registry visit.

Just to bring images back into this topic, the pictures from the auction of these items are now in the Glass Trinket Set website with the written permission of the seller, Susan Raisin, to whom I'm thankful for their use: PAGE LINK, along with the information from Glen and Frank about these pieces. Thank you both.   8)

I've merged our topics re Inwald Kranich / Crane as one had lost its image, the other still has images and links. :)

I hope to visit TNA at Kew in a couple of week's time, and will of course make a point of researching Registration 750112  -  hopefully we may learn some additional information, but not guaranteed of course.           
I'm surprised that in the intervening twelve years or thereabouts, none of those interested in the material related to this design thought that a visit to Kew was worthwhile - or at least that's my reading of the various posts -  and some of those involved originally appear to have ceased their contact with the GMB.               This Registration must be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records - the longest wait ever to see the original factory drawing. ;)
Might the absence of a visit to TNA be due to the fact that those folk all lived some considerable distance from Kew??

I dare say Barbara has now forgotten that she ever had her piece ;D

Thanks Paul, like you I was surprised that we'd not looked this up previously, which is why I added it to the lookup list. I can't wait to see what you can find out about it. :)

A little surprising perhaps that bearing in mind this design is known to have been made by Inwald, that no one took a gamble and suggested Clayton Mayers - to whom this British Board of Trade Registration was allocated in 1929  -  something like five years before its appearance in the 1934 catalogue, that Glen mentions           Wonder if it did appear in an earlier catalogue?
Frank appears not to have substantiated his comment that this Registration did not appear in CLASS IV - which you will see was in fact the case.
Knowing less than nothing about trinket sets, it surprised me to see a 'comb tray'  -  have I been asleep and they are common accoutrements with these sets, or is the inclusion of said tray rare?                   Despite its artistic appeal to C21 glass collectors, it's apparent that Registered protection for this design wasn't extended, perhaps mid 1930s problems at the factory were more to blame than a lack of a U.K. market - who knows.

We've had shed loads of chit chat on C.M. over the years, as can be seen by using the Board's search facility, and I don't intend to repeat those words, other than to offer the following extract from an interesting and much earlier GMB discussion, posted originally by Glen Thistlewood - "  ....Clayton Mayers were agents, wholesalers and distributors. They were experts in publicity and advertising and mounted some amazing campaigns in the UK to promote the extensive and hugely successful Jacobean range. They also acted on behalf of Inwald to register some of their designs."

sorry the pix aren't overly good, think the Kew images are original b. & w. pix simply pasted into the Representations book.
