Thank you, James, for the ID of the Adams & Co. coal scuttle / bucket.

Thank you, Sid - so it is! Perhaps I''m just 'scuttle blind' after seeing so many other pressed glass coal scuttles / buckets,  but I can't seem to find it on the Thistlewood Sowerby CD-ROM catalogue sets - the swans and shoes etc. are there on page 34 of the pattern book XV (1895), but not the pattern 1970 coal scuttle.

I notice that the illustration in Thompson does not note it as a regsistered design (but neither does it mention any of the other patterns as being from registered designs either), so it looks as if I can now link the Sowerby pattern 1970 coal scuttle to James's RD 98215 of 18 April 1888. 

Fred.

Thanks all for information and photo's.   And such a quick response.  I had been looking for two weeks but in the wrong country.

Seems once again I shouldn't have believed a seller.  I didn't expect the manufacture date would be that late and also from U.S.A.  Is cute though.

not sure of the origin or location of people's purchases of these pieces, but as a suggestion and a way to avoid later problems, might it be an idea if a request for manufacturer attribution was made, prior to purchasing.           Perhaps this might be more appropriate for ebay purchases than the local antiques centre. :)

You're 100% correct again Paul.  As it was only a few pounds I took a chance.  I thought the pattern looked familiar and detail looked Victorian to me at the time.  Thanks for your assistance and wise words.
