Pinkish Open-salt 1875
« on: June 14, 2011, 04:43:39 PM »
I found this little chap at the car boot last weekend and just got round to looking at it. I presume it's an open-salt, It has a distinctive pink undertone and as you can see has a registration mark.
 
I gather you can trace the maker via the mark - or does anyone recognise it straight off?

This may help. Your photo isn't clear enough to read it all http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/lozkey.htm

The pinkish tone is probably sun purpling

The details I can see on your larger version translates to 10 September 1875 (the left hand side should have a 6 which isn't visible in the photos)... that would make it one of four designs registered by Sowerby & Co Ellison Glass Works Gateshead-on-Tyne. The design numbers were 294376 to 294379   294378 was a design for a bowl, 294379 was a dish and cover, the other two aren't explained.
