Greener pressed uranium basket
« on: September 18, 2011, 08:20:09 AM »
Henry Greener uranium handled basket with grape and vine pattern, although don't know whether it was intended for grapes.      Lozenge mark too difficult to photograph (lies on the inside immediately below where the handle joins the basket)  -  but according to Jenny Thompson the details run out to registered design No. 238105.      This was first registered on 14th January 1870 - so falls into the second group of diamond marks, although don't know when this example may have been made.        About 7"/180mm long.   Very good nick really, and the pressing is crisp and sharp.               I've not seen one before, so just wondered if anyone thought this was a fairly common item, or perhaps far less so.    thanks for looking. :)
