My large green lidded pot - ID = Sowerby pattern 2477
« on: July 22, 2010, 12:09:02 PM »
Good afternoon all,

I am wading through my green glass collection that my OH purchased for me and I am having no luck with a few items, this being one of them.  It is a lidded pot presumed bonbonierre (can't spell it) with a lovely cut pattern.  It stands
approx 17cm tall with lid x approx 12cm.  I am sure someone will recognise the pattern and manufacturer in an instant but I can't seem to locate it.
Many thanks

It's pressed glass, not cut and most likely a powder bowl from a dressing table set. What's the base like? Is it ground and shiny or straight out of the mould?

Thanks Christine I think we all know by now I am rubbish with terminology.  The base is ground looks like originally shiny but no more as it is covered in scratches and wear.  The pattern on the base I presume then is from the mould.
TIA

And without sounding thick  :ooh: but how would I differentiate between a bonbon whats its name and a powder pot because that would be lots of powder for the size.  I have obviously seen powder pots but always been a lot smaller than this.

I think bonbonierre's are a bit of an ebay myth to cover any lidded pot or bowl or footed thingy too small for cake.

Powder (as in face powder not tooth powder) pots tend to be larger so you could get a powder puff in.

If the base was ground and shiny, as in mirror shiny, then I would look at Inwald.

Sowerby biscuit # 2630 I'd say - see Glen's wonderful CD 2 around 1940 page 10  ;)

Margii's picture deceived me, as the pot is foreshortened.  :-[
