Spllit: Czech lady frosted figure Reg#, Importers
« on: October 16, 2005, 04:19:12 PM »
Fantastic article Marcus - I mean that, I have had some good debates with you on post war Czech glass (without knowing your pedigree as it were  :oops: ) - we are the moment looking at some items that may not I thought were Sklo - did you see the two blue bits and other I posted in the thread, some others are coming in to help as well with pictures

I think it has been very easy to shout Sklo Union, you make that point very clear, I will be very cautious in future in terms of manufacturer, designer and even country - I mean it is such an unknown territory and you know more than most and admit this so I for one will not be so flippant - there is a Czech lady frosted figure c 1950s (they say?) I see posted on many sites, well I sold exact same one two weeks ago on eBay with Rd No - that is a UK number and it was late 1930s – it also says ‘foreign’ so it’s been imported but has a UK patent to protect design, but which country is it, I think Czech like many others … but …. mmmmmm - so I for one take nothing as read anymore and await more research - in terms of selling, well still got to make a buck, but am going to keep some stuff relating to this topic until I get more info - I am sure working together we will get attributions we are all surprised at, especially little me :roll:  :wink:

Adam, Your RD number was issued to L Cohen on 4 Nov 1929. I seem to recall someone saying that Cohen was an importer, but I cannot find that reference again. I've searched this board and nothing came up for him.

Can anyone please confirm Cohen was an importer and which companies/countries he imported from? I recall seeing something else with an RD number issued to Cohen and meant to ask this question a while ago but had forgotten to.

1931 PG diary

L Cohen & Sons Ltd
23 Bartlett's Buildings., London EC4


Agents for James Pearson, Chesterfield (Stoneware)

In 1950 Pearson's agent was S W Stunt, London EC1. So Cohen family did not get through the war. Needs a follow-up at Companies House, no online info

Thanks Frank that is very useful. Does the 1931 date mean that was when he began or is it in interim reference?

No idea, probably interim

Hi,

I've just had a chance to look at my copies of the PG Diary(s) for L Cohen as a London agent. They are not mentioned in the 1938 edition. The only edition that I have which lists importers specifically is 1948, and that does not mention L. Cohen & Sons Ltd.

However, S. W. Stent of 31, Ely Place, London EC1 are already named as agents for Pearson & Co (Chesterfield) Ltd in 1938.

Therefore, I am wondering whether the theory about the Cohen family not surviving the war is relevant. Did the business even carry on until the war?

Thank you Nigel, that's useful to know. So we have them in 1929 and 1931.

I checked the Glass Association's Blue Book and found the only Registered Numbers for Cohen during the years covered (i.e. 1908 - 1945) were the three that happened in 1929.
