Hi

well we had followed the discussion about the names of the different pieces but our piece is clearly named on the side in capitals CELERY and wondered if this was unusual as nobody else mentioned their pieces were named.

also did they make the full range from the 1930's or were pieces introduced piecemeal?

thanks

Marking "vases" celery was a tax avoidance issue as table ware wasn't classed a luxury. Do a search for celery on here and you'll find more examples. Little is known about the 1935-1939 range but it did not have the coloured bands sometimes seen and the glass has a greenish tinge. The war then stopped production. The 1946-1953 table ware range was large - the 1950 catalogue has 18 items, although some of these items are variation of another (e.g., a celery with a lid can be a pickle or a biscuit barrel). Decoration and metal fitments started in about 1950.
