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.

This is an interesting piece... listed as a possible sampler? But is it? And why two Reg Design nos?

You will find details of this in Jenny Thompson, The Identification of English Pressed Glass 1842-1908 ISBN 0 9515491 0 3

Page 12 and 13 Greener,  there should be three numbers.

Reg No96775 27 March 1888 Rustic handle Reg No95935 16 Mach 1888 Glass pattern and 98551 21 April 1888, I have read (not sure where ) that this was a trade sample to show what Greener made.

Thanks Tony, that is interesting. I don't have the Thompson book yet, so wasn't aware of this item. It struck me as unusual when I saw the sale listed  for it.

I just happened to find an example of RD no 98551 today, but it's not the plate or the basket I've seen on other sites or on eBay, but this is a footed bowl. I'm adding pics here for reference in case it's useful to anyone.  8)
