Dear Everyone At The Glass Message Board, Happy Christmas And A Happy New Year With Best Wishes From Traditional Jazz :fc:. Some time back i have found this large bowl which is round and it seems to have the same pattern and shape as The Oxford Tea Party Compote and the other small compote which there are photos of these two items in this posting. The size of this bowl is about Twelve inches in diameter. There cant be that many of this item around because of its size presumly being broken over the years. I will at some pont post photos of this item which relates to the Victorian Pressed Flint Glass Compote that is being discussed here. Regards Traditional Jazz. :sg:

Is this thread still going? It will outlive us all I think. But it's good that Mr Jazz has kicked it into life again as I now think I know what his oval dish is (the photos posted back in June). It looks like a match to the Percival Vickers "Grosvenor" tableware set, which can be seen in full in their 1881 pressed glass catalogue. They produced the oval bowl in sizes: 5,6,7,8,9,10,11 inches.

I mention the full set briefly here where I lump it with their Jersey set:

http://sites.google.com/site/molwebbhistory/Home/registered-designs/percival-vickers-unregistered-pressed-glass

Looking back through the other images on this thread, the item photographed on Jan 5th 2010 is a bang on match for a "basin" from the Percival Vickers Jersey set.

The other photos I am less sure about.

Jazz, could I have permission to put your photos from the Jersey & Grosvenor sets on my website (with attribution)? I have been looking for an example from these sets for a while.

You are welcome to contact me through the email link on the following page

http://sites.google.com/site/molwebbhistory/Home/contact---updates

and I will send you the relevant pages from the Percival Vickers catalogue so you can make up your own mind. The images are copyright from a research library so they cannot be posted publically.

Frustratingly this does not quite match any of the Manchester patterns but is so close you'd have to suspect either Molineaux Webb or Percival Vickers here. On first glance it looks very like the others on this thread, with circular or oval facets and two rows of diamonds, but the difference is in the top edge of the items.

The Grosvenor set has a spiky top edge. The Jersey set has a top edge which is level as though it has been snapped off. The one in this photo has a wavy top edge.

The Percival Vickers Colonial set has a wavy edge like this but the body of that pattern is all diamonds and no facets. Molineaux Webb did a pattern which matches that in these photos but I've only seen it on a sugar bowl and can't prove it was ever used on a dish.
