regret no help from the CLASS III (Glass) Representations Book BT 43/61.

As I thought, it does appear that Edwardes submitted several identical copies of the same drawing to the Board of Trade, and asked them to Register this one design under the several CLASSES we've discussed.

Just for completeness am attaching a picture taken today from the CLASS III book, but as can be seen it is identical to the others, and adds nothing new.

Some more pictures of the pale blue crown. Missing its cross , but no other damage other than a couple of tiny chips to the underside of lid.

Wow finally found some information on this A E Edwardes crown vaseline crown jar . We found ours in a thrift store in Chickasha Oklahoma for $20.00 USD. sadly it has suffered the hands of time and has pretty much the same damage as the rest of the ones spoke about in this topic. I must say this has been a exciting and interesting find for us as we often wonder how it ended up in Oklahoma ..

Hi Ruhser and welcome to the GMB.

Glad this forum is of help. Yes, they invariably suffer from some form of damage due to the shape: the top cross on mine is missing, but it is still a great statement piece. It could have been shipped to the US when someone emigrated but, with online auction sites becoming so popular, the movement of items across the globe is inevitable.

On page 10 of the PDf here showing items from the 1870 Baccarat catalogue [MB Baccarat 1870, 2ème Partie, Planche 223] there is an image which looks to me to be the same design as that registered by AA Edwardes in 1865.  The text says, " No. 3395, Deckeldose als Krone auf Kissen" (translated as No. 3395, lidded box as a crown on cushions.)
