Basically a conglomerate of glass factories starting around 1910, various variations in the company name but UGB was fairly constant. Some better known brands Sherdley, Ravenhead...

Naturally they kept merging until there was only one left... pop...

Pamela, I'm sorry I thought you knew it was United Glass Bottle, otherwise I'd have said sooner. We've discussed various bits of UGB production on the board before and Heidi has an interest in their glass. (Where is she by the way, I thought she was due back by now?)

Hi, everyone.

I'm back, but between catching up at work and Christmas preparations have been pretty swamped. So many apologies to those (especially David and Anne) who haven't had responses to e-mails.

Pamela - I have more information on UGB (later United Glass, now part of Owens-Illinois), which I've picked up along the way of researching its two tableware subsidiaries (Sherdley and Ravenhead) and which I'll share here as soon as I have time (hopefully this evening or at the weekend). I've never seen anything like this bottle before - as Anne said, most of their production was pretty utilitarian. So I'd be inclined to agree with your theory that this was an ordinary bottle embellished by local craftspeople in Shanghai.

Thank you so much ! Armin knows, it's from China and will never believe it is real silver unless I take an acid probe/proof at the bottom - I should do that really and inform you too about the outcome  ;D
Heidi, can you date this bottle pleeeease? (earliest possible 1932 - latest 1950)

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Design was registered late 1930, but it's not shown in the Blue Book or on the Great Glass website listing.
