comments on an attractive trinket tray. - ID = Libochovice, SU
« on: February 28, 2010, 08:14:18 PM »
I kept this one because unusually, for me, it has a Regd. No., which is 821596 - which runs down to July '37.   However, thought it was attractive anyway with the large sort of Deco tear drop design.      According to the 'Blue Book' this registration number is for Hoskins Rose & Co., about whom I can see almost nothing.  Having looked thru much of the 'Blue Book' it wud seem that their venture into the world of glass was exceptionally brief.    Were they in fact simply wholesalers or distributors?      Hope you like the pic.    Paul S.

Hmm, according to Anne's trinket set site it's the same pattern as Libochovice #1970:

However, can guarantee that it does carry the Regd. No. quoted (to be read from the underside  -  adjacent to the main curve)  -  but you are correct, it is an absolute dead ringer for Anne's Libochovice, right down to the exact size - someone buy the mould??       sincere thanks.     Paul S.

Nope, it is Libochovice. Hoskins Rose were importers not makers. Importers and agents are often shown as the registrant of a design, especially for the Czech factories.

thank you for your helpful reply Anne  -  and I had suggested originally that I thought they were factors of some sort, rather than makers.    Anyway, now I know for certain.   If only life wasn't sometimes so complicated!    Paul S.

You're welcome Paul. :)  I have a few pieces with RD nos registered by Hoskins Rose, all of which appear in the Libochovice catalogue, so there was clearly a strong business relationship there.

I have the same trinket tray, BUT, also a candlestick (Reg 821596). The Trinket Set Website states there is only a tray!

Any suggestions?

It just means no-one has found anything else to match yet. The candlestick will have a different pattern number.

It means the GTS site hasn't yet got that info as I'm adding new stuff all the time. :)
