Silber & Fleming London pressed glass Boat
« on: February 26, 2008, 08:33:47 PM »
Found this pressed glass Boat today and thought it may be of some interest, Rd Number 12723 for Silber & Fleming of London , dates to about 1884 and measures 12.25" in length, also has has the word TRADE MARK with what looks like a Butterfly with the initals AMS, after doing a little reseach they seem to have a large wholesale warehouse in Woodstreet London and sold just about everything , so not sure who would of made the boat for them

Your boat is part of a jardiniere (item No. 5029) and should have a supporting frame of crystal glass bars bound together with silver-plated wire. This all sits on silvered glass mounted on a maroon-velvet covered base (the plateau)! From the Silber and Fleming Glass & China Book. And they'd have flogged you the artificial flowers to go in it!

I know the one you are talking about with the glass rods wired together, there was a post last year , but that one and all the other ones I have seen have never been marked, and this one does seen similar to that design
