What appears to be a Stuart Stratford jampot here?

Peter, that's a nice selection of Stuart you have there!  :mrgreen:

The other issue is........date wise what was the approximate cut-off period that signalled the end of machine acid etching (for the U.K.) - does anyone have a reliable date  -  could be wrong but this particular piece certainly looks post 1940 manufacture. 

Almost certainly still in use in 1950s, but cheaper transfer and printing techniques would have largely replaced it for cheap glassware in general.

Hi Anne,

Thats quite a handsome piece - I checked the shape guide reproduced in the Miller/McConnell book and sure enough its in there listed as a honey pot.  I was basing my identification on what I could see of the lid before that, the angled spoon slot and flat knob - it certainly looked right!  Are you going to have a punt?  It dosen't seem like much money really.

Cheers, Peter

And thanks for the kind words, I'm quite proud of my collection!

Hi Peter, no as I can't justify it in terms of what I'm collecting (trinket sets) and I am rapidly running out of space here!  :ooh: As it is I have a box of common stuff which is going back to a local charity shop just so as I can regain some space.

I only pick up odd things that aren't trinket sets if I see them locally - things that might help answer a question, add to the knowledge pot, or provide a label or a mark... otherwise I have to leave them be or I'll end up sleeping in the flower beds whilst the glass fills the house.  :thud:

I'm trying to stay away from buying on eBay altogether or I get carried away and then I'll be in bother with himself!!!  :help:

Hah!  I know what you mean Anne, my terrible secret is a storage locker that is slowly filling up with bits and pieces which I keep bringing home like a magpie - I try to sell more than I buy on Trademe (NZ's version of Ebay) but some weeks I'm not so successful with that plan :)

Peter, can you take a peek at this - I wondered if it might be Stuart Stratford too?

Hi Anne, funnily enough I've got one of those bowls :) they aren't Stuart, but very, very similar - I'll pop a reply on the other thread

Regards, Peter
