Sowerby and Markhbeinn!
« on: November 05, 2005, 05:17:35 PM »
Thank you Glen - your E-books arrived safely and I shall give some comments directly to you - nothing serious  :wink:
They are a must for me and I think many other people here too !

This is my first find after a short glimpse:
MARKHBEINN 1927 *PICADILLY* is not Inwald but SOWERBY 1927 Service 2414 - from 1933 onwards: * DERBY *

Rich information and beautiful (calm) layout - thank you so much again!

Pamela - thank you for your generous and kind comments. :oops:  I am so glad that you are enjoying them, it makes all the hard work worthwhile. Thank you.

The Derby aka Pinwheel pattern is very interesting. It was made by BOTH Inwald and Sowerby - so don't change your records yet. We have written about the two versions of this pattern in our books and also in the Czech Special (on Inwald and Rindskopf) where we show a close up photo that we feel identifies the difference between the two manufacturers versions of this design.

Inwald made a huge range in this pattern (shown as Piccadilly in the Markhbein catalogues). And to really confuse us all, both makers produced Carnival Glass vases! If the items are in purple or blue Carnival (both are rare, but blue is very rare) then you can bet it is Sowerby.

The one characteristic that I always advise people to use to tell if a piece is Inwald is the highly polished (mirror shiny ground) base.

Again, my thanks Pamela (http://www.emotipad.com/emoticons/Flowers.gif)

in my opinion it is the Sowerby star in all corners - but I got to see your books on this, Glen

Pamela - I'm not sure what you mean when you say

Can you help me to understand?

What Markhbeinn pages do you have showing the 'Picadilly' range? Are there many items shown or just a few?

Glen, investigated today again all catalogues Inwald (named 'yours 1927' and Markhbeinn - you are completely right: the (printed on paper) pinwheels are at least similar if not the same  :)
When I posted here yesterday I mixed them up with my very Markhbeinn'ish / Inwald'ish three items - there is no 'pinwheel in all corners' how I tried to describe my thoughts :arrow:

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/schalen/02251.html
http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/schalen/02254.html

Especially the brownish rosé led me to Inwald / Markhbeinn... the colour matches exactly the Inwald/Markhbeinn vases...

Guess I should correct my Inwald pages soonest - at least put an  :?:

Mod: Thanks to Glen Thistlewood, these are now known to be Hortensia (Poland) and Markbeinn. Follow the links for more.

Happy to agree with you!
