No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

many thanks neil  - so guess we may never know who actually made the bowl - although in view of your comment about 'importer', then it seems very probable that the bowl may well have been sourced from the Continent  -  and this may also account for the 'dot'.       Although Registration Nos. are not usually seen on Continental pressed glass, it would, as Bernard pointed out, be.............'perfectly natural for a continental European mouldmaker to separate off his thousands that way' ......believing perhaps that was what he was supposed to do. :)

That's not strictly true. Jules Lang, for example, registered and had many products marked

As did Hoskins Rose, lots of Libochovice pieces show with HR design numbers.

Well, obviously I have led a sheltered life girls - I don't recall seeing a single piece of glass (made on the Continent) showing a No. (aside from this bowl of course ;D)    However, you have now educated me, and I will now spend every waking moment looking for one  :sg: :fc:
