This powder bowl in green glass glows under a black light, and has a chromed mirror-bright screw on lid, so I'm guessing it's not that old - perhaps 1950s, would that be about right?  Any ideas who may have made it please?

Hi Anne,
no ideas, but could easily be 1930s when Chrome was also popular.

Have now also seen this pot in blue glass with a chrome lid with patterned insert.  Still no idea of maker though. :cry:

The lid of your box isn´t decorated like this one, Anne?

The lid of mine is completely plain chrome, with no indication that anything was ever there. The blue one I saw had an insert of that type Dirk, but with a different design.

Pamela, this is the only shot I have found with the bottom visible - it's completely plain. I'll do some pics of the base as well and add them later.

The other pot with the lid insert is this one... different pot and lid, but style of lid matches the one Dirk found on eBay, and the glass on the eBay one matches the glass in my original pot at the top of this topic.  This one is also an unknown and is a darker green than the first one.

The second one certainly looks like a "Regent of London" pot, very nice too!

Jayne, please tell me about Regent of London. I can't bring them to mind...

I think the style of lid decoration on the second one is what's called Guilloché?
