They all seem to be marked; that's what started this thread many moons ago

No i have had more that are not marked than are , only one of the two i have now is marked and i know Ray Annenberg has had unmarked ones  we have been comparing these for a very long time trying to get an answer and they have been discussed on one of the Whitefriars forums , as i live in Whitefriars land they are not that rare and turn up in the charity shops now and again and at local fairs .Honest Guv i dont tell porkies . Well only to solicitors .  I can take the vases to Cambridge in February if anyone is intrested ?
I believe Patrick can add to this when he gets back from the USA  .

I agree with John, most of the transparent, ribbed versions are not all marked.

As for Anne's confusion earlier - from my recent contribution:

Therefore, since he [Thomas Carnie West] designed it (probably), and certainly owned the registration, he was able to sell to a number of companies - Powell and S&W being two of the known ones.

I think you missed out a word

The unmarked ones were probably made after the registration had expired, which may have been in 1926 if the period was only 15 years

You are quite right Christine, Thank you :)

I have edited my previous post above to read properly, but left the one you quoted.

Hi Nigel , just as a matter of interest can you think of any other Whitefriars items that have a RD mark before they purchased their first sandblaster just before they closed in 1980 ? .

Ahhh thanks Nigel;  do we know who Thomas Carnie West was though, or is he another of these mystery men we keep finding?

Lastly, yes Anne, "another of these mystery men" !!
