Who Were Leroc of Czecho-slovakia?
« on: April 16, 2005, 02:14:55 PM »
Hi,

I have just bought a little ring dish with an inaglio of a heron/stork in flight and an etched marked

 "Leroc regd design 750112, made in Czecho-slovakia"

and a moulded
"regd no.750112",

can anyone throw any light on the maker, and if the 50p was well spent!

Many thanks,
Barbara

I presume it is a British design registration and thus 1929. Can you post a picture please.

Hi Frank,

Here is the picture

Not very clear but it is quite a hard object to take.

I have a trade directory from 1931 on its way, might be able to ID Leroc then as I cannot find it elsewhere.

Hi Frank,

Thanks, it would be lovely to find out who they were as the glass is really good quality.

Many thanks,

Hi Frank,

It's a case of some you win, some you don't. Just because things are marked it doesn't mean it is easy :)  If it were it would be a very boring existance :wink:

Thanks for trying, and I'll hang on to my little dish a while longer.

I assume Leroc is a trade name, not company, but yet to be tracked down. Quickest is to check trade name directories in a public library.

There's a full set on eBay at the moment:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=290246421363

RD no 750112 doesn't appear in either the Blue Book or on Great-Glass, but the number dates from November 1929. There's a good picture of the etched mark on the base of one of the items in the listing.
