Coronation 1953 Vase
« on: June 09, 2011, 11:14:31 AM »
Clear glass hooped vase with facted base - to front moulding of Queens head and 'Elizabeth II' Coronation 1953' - 7" high with moulded star cutting to base - anyone idea of maker and information on such pieces.

Thanks Adam

Bagley I believe. The same mould was used for the Festival of Britain. Should also be marked celery.

At least it's my understanding from the latest Bagley book that these are theirs.

Looks like a match Christine - but mine has not got celery on the back.

Bagley Glass 3rd revised edition (Bowey, Parsons & Parson) shows the Festival of Britain Vase on p80. I think I've also seen it uncommeratised.

I have the Festival of Britain one in front of me now and it has celery marked about one cm down from the top, it also has  four letters on the base near the edge hard to read but my guess is REGD but no numbers that i can see .  I dont usually do pressed glass cant think where or when i got it . jp

Ok, so I'm going to take this step by step..........does it say who retailed them, or were they on general release? By now you'll realise I have a particular interest ;)

You'll need to speak to Angela; there is little information beyond a picture of the FoB celery and a mention of several items for the 1953 Coronation, including a flint plate and a butter pat. The FoB celery and the coronation vase appear to be from the same basic mould IMHO.
