I need good quality close-up photographs of early post-War Bagley Jetique with fired-on multicoloured floral spray transfer decoration for a little detective work I'm attempting.

You will see one example of this style on the Pontefract Museum Bagley reference site here — click on the image for an enlargement, sadly not quite detailed enough for me.

Note that most floral decoration was cold hand-painted, now sadly deteriorating badly as it washes off, as you will see if you browse this reference website (search it on "jetique").

Ideally ex-camera unoptimised, but lightly optimised might give me sufficient detail.

Please give me permission to use, not use, or extract from them as I wish, and how you would wish to be identified in a copyright notice, should anything come of this.

Please email them to me with the words "Bagley photographs" or something equally meaningful in the Subject line.   Note that my email system rejects blank subject lines as spam.

Grateful thanks.

Bernard, I have what I believe to be a Bagley Jetique 3-piece flower bowl set that you might like to see.  However, my computer has some compatability problems with Hotmail and I've been unable to contact you by email with the images.  Is there another way I can get them to you?  May be here or in the glass gallery?

Hi Bernard,
I have a small Jetique vase, & it has a multicoloured floral transfer print design, it is also marked underneath with a Registration number for 1948 or 49. I can get a photo of it for you next week as I am on holidays at the moment & away from my glass.
Hope it will be of help.
Marinka.
More glass than class!

Anne — Thanks.   It's the first time that I have come across any indication that my use of the old BTInternet / BTOpenworld ISP, now taken over by Yahoo!, causes problems at your end.   I wasn't aware of any restrictions on the size of incoming attached files.

An alternative approach might be to load them up into any web space that is available to you, either with full Internet access, or with restricted access, such as by password through a control system, like some photo albums.   Once I've downloaded them you can delete them.

Anne's glass gallery does have limitations on file sizes, but uses an efficient optimisation system that retains fine detail, like IrfanView.   So that route may be possible.

I will ask Anne's advice.

Marinka — Thanks, and watch this space next week in case you hit similar problems.   ... and thanks for not being another Anne!

Just thinking on a sem-techy level ...

From the envelope icons, Bernard's email is btopenworld; Anne E. b.'s email is btinternet - it's basically the same thing. Hotmail is an entirely different thing - not sure why there should be a problem for Anne to send to Bernard.

It shouldn't do; the attachment limit is 10Mb

Hopefully you will receive my email now Bernard :).  I haven't used the email link here on the GMB which for some reason ('puter numpty that I am ::)) was causing a problem.

I'm not sure where Hotmail is coming in if both Anne and Bernard are using BT services?  Most email services have a file attachment size limit (some as low as 2Mb, others as high as 20Mb).  There is a useful free file transfer service which Barry uses for larger files which could be the answer for you, http://www.yousendit.com/cms/liteaccount (they do a paid service as well but the free one works well - Barry uses it to send stuff to a chum in Bhopal.)

Sorry Anne, I threw a red herring there I think.  I seemed to be encountering a similar problem that I had previously experienced with Hotmail, and just assumed it was the same thing :-[ :-[ :-[  ::)  I did say I was a complete numpty ;D
