Barbara â€” A lovely find.
I've looked it up in the pattern books in Reynolds, and, as I expected, it is not there. For some time now I have had the impression that the two factory pattern books "A" and "W" were not updated after about 1946â€“47, and that there was a new pattern book in use, probably now lost. Also Clyne Farquharson had his own pattern numbering system, sometimes transcribed to the "A" and "W" books as a suffix thus A6100/41E
, indicating to me that he kept his own design/pattern book, which could have been one and the same as the missing factory pattern book.
This theory is reinforced by a number of late designs illustrated in Reynolds not appearing in the "A" and "W" books, by some interesting illustrations in a 1947 design publication I bought recently, and now by your scent bottle.
Anyway, back to your scent bottle. I cannot tell from your photograph whether the decoration is cut or moulded, and also it looks slightly opalescent. Any chance of more photographs? Or, even better, could you bring it with you if you are coming to Woking tomorrow?
