paper label for Sowerby
« on: June 02, 2011, 07:00:20 PM »
I can't now find the section showing marks/labels, so not sure whether this one is on the GMB or not  -  however, can always ignore if it is already on the archives.    According to Jackson this indicates a 1960's manufacture (not too long before their demise in 1972, apparently.    Amazing how some pieces can survive with a label intact for half a century, or thereabouts - obviously never used.
Ref.    '20th Century Factory Glass'  -  Leslie Jackson  -  2000.

P.S.     Anne (Mod.)  -   Only just seen your comments about collecting Diamond marks and Rd. Nos. for the GMB reference site??    Do you now have most, or are you still collecting??

Wonder why the spelling of Tyneside on the labels?

Paul, I have an unused bowl immaculate with the label intact as well.  I also questioned the spelling?

 :-[  I was so busy being David Bailey that I didn't spot this - obviously you two have sharp eyes.     I've googled a bit, but don't seem able to bring up anything with a 'y'.     We need an expert on dialect spellings from North East England.     Perhaps it was an American printing the labels ;)       Who do we know living in the area?

Tynesyde was a brand name not a place.

I thought at the time this spelling was horribly corny, but nobody listened to me!

Paul, the labels albums are here: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/index.php?cat=6 - we do have a Sowerby Tynesyde one there but thanks for thinking of it. :kissy: Re the Registered Designs, we are still collecting examples of any lozenges and number marks - the album for them is here: http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/thumbnails.php?album=763 - there seem to be millions of them so we need all the examples we can get please. :)
