 ;D has been jolly, but it does under-line the ease with which observations and assumptions become facts. At least if we get it right here those making the effort will pass that on (Hmm see later) and discussions like this might be seen as infighting but regulars know we respect each other and that does not stop us being critical of each others comments.

Now in front of me is a small tot. Transfer printed "A present from Scottish National Exhibition, Edinburgh 1908. John Baird Ltd. Glasgow." and raises the same issues... or does it? While it is quite likely as here they are representing a glass product.... or perhaps they just bought in the tots and printed it. Or outsourced the whole job. Probability may favour it being their own production throughout as the context of the exhibition was for firms involved to market their capabilities. But doubt must remain.

I recently pointed someone on the board to posts explaining a registered number on a Bohemian item they had listed on eBay as made in London... but did not seem to get the message across. Makes little difference what we do someone will always come along and make a claim based on the marking without further consideration. Now and again we do get the confirmation (Scottish souveneirs made in Sweden or USA for example) of source of the objects, moulded or later decorated.

... so, if I understand it correctly, my observations are ill-considered precipitous guesswork, whereas yours, presumably, are judicious conclusions

Your observations are perfectly valid,.........

It wasn't their business.

This is appears as a statement of fact. Where's your proof? Either give us the proof, or be more circumspect with your assertions.

 :D and it gets jollier.... but Bernard you certainly got a good line of words there that would have many heading to dictionary dot con or whatever.

Meanwhile we got a name to the back of a head and no-one has commented on the inscription on the other example.

p.s. Bernard, no hassle to make a panel mould, 5 mins extra work with the potential for lots of added value.... look at the number of 'older' bottles made in panel moulds that used blank plates just to meet a stock size.
