Pink serving dish ID = Bagley "Alexandra"
« on: February 24, 2006, 09:29:56 PM »
A large (28 x 20 cm) frosted (sand blasted on the back, rather than acid treated I think) dull-pink three-compartment serving dish. Quite thick glass with a deep raised pattern of what look like poppies on the back. Can't find anything like it on Pamela's site. Can anyone help with an ID?

Mod: The picture linnk is broken. If you own this glass and you still have a photograph, contact a mod so that we can arrange to restore images to the thread.

Thank you Bernard, didn't think the quality was quite Bagley though and the designer had never seen a rose leaf! Ordering book now!!

Christine  Sorting for MK (1950 dateline  the most difficult dateline ever), I have just unpacked a plain 8-flower Alexandra in blue.    Checking with Keble Martin, the flowers and leaves are definitely marigold / daisy family, not rose.

I doubt whether I can put it out for sale, as it will cost more to display than its slender profit margin justifies.

What do I do?   Charity shop or free gift to my first Bagley customer?   Any suggestions?
