Hiya,

To answer your confusion Frank:

"Nigel said it was an unambiguous question "

This relates to the mis-interpretation you put on my comment in an earlier post.

I said that I did not find it so.

This relates to the original question put by Stephen - in that I do not find the question ambiuous.

I hope that clears the problem up :)



Good to see you putting in so many suggestions Frank :) BTW the names you obtained from the adverts are also in BGBtW ;)

Royal Brierley Crystal:
 
21. H Whitworth              page 11 (again in an advert)
22. R.S. Williams-Thomas  page 11 (again in an advert)

Note. If anyone checks this out, the Keith Murray sherry set is the decanter and glasses at the front of the picture - so read from front to back. Mentioned as I have often spoken to people who have not noticed and have corrulated the items with the captions the wrong way round.

Stuart:

23. L Kny                       page 28 (essay) page 97, 98, etc

T Webb:

24. Hom. Folkes              page 87 - already mentioned in your previous post.


Cheers, Nigel

Yes, but all rather Chance-centric! However, I'd prefer to release these details once the book is published. FYI, this is earmarked for the first week in December - yup, it's that close :o

How about H J Dunne-Cooke.You only have to look in the V&A And other Museums to see his work and how important his contribution was.

 Hi, As the grandson of James Hogan I think I should put his name forward to be included on the list........
In 1936 along with Keith Murray,he was awarded the honor "Designer for Industry of the Royal Society of Arts", (abbreviated "R.D.I."). At that time he was chief glass designer at Whitefriars and a fruit bowl,water set and decanter are on display at the V@A. His 9280 Embassy wine suite was used in all British Embassies from 1949 up till 1966.
Best wishes Patrick.

 I agree with Patrick, his grandfather was also involved with Dunne- Cooke at Whitefriars and they came up with some great designs,D C also designed for a couple of major Swedish companies, but there is little info on him,I am sure at least one of you will put that right.
