Registered Designs and Design Lookup Requests
« on: April 06, 2013, 03:32:05 PM »
If you cannot find the information about a Registered Design in our GlassGallery album here: http://www.yobunny.org.uk/glassgallery/thumbnails.php?album=763 then please feel free to request a look up in the National Archives.

Some while ago it was suggested that we have a way of flagging up design number lookup requests, and I said I'd look into it, and then it slipped my mind! So, to address the issue, I'm making a sticky topic and you are invited to add your design number lookup as a simple reply to this topic. Then whoever visits the National Archives will have an easy to print off list to work from.

I suggest that each lookup request should be in a simple standard format as follows...

Quote
Registered Design Number:
Date/Year (if known):
Link to topic on the board about the item (if there is one):

Please do not post any other info about the item in your request or it'll get too messy to extract the lookup details needed. Keep it simple and it should work for us. :)

apologies for being more than a little late in resolving the above queries, but believe I've now answered all outstanding items, so trust these can be removed to avoid any confusion.
If there are any new Reg. Nos. that people would like me to investigate, I'm hoping to visit Kew in a couple of week's time.

Thank you, Paul. Your input from your Kew trips to TNA have taken the study of British glass design registrations to a whole new level.

Fred.
