Very interesting Sid.

The fact that yesvil's plate has a "WR" on it should guarantee the plate was made in Britain / Europe, unless some moulds made it to the USA. This is presuming Siegmar Geiselberger & previous curators at the V&A are correct in their researches.

Thank you Sid - I feel a bit guilty relying on other peoples library's, but If I got all the books I wanted or needed there would be no money left for food let alone new glass! so thank you all.

Finally contacted the EAPG society about my own lacy plates and they have given this very full and useful reply:

Key point for me is that Ruth Webb Lee's attributions are indeed thought to be a little shaky by modern standards of proof.
