... any the thoughts what BCM that precedes Hailglass stands for. ...
Chris â€” I thought that BCM HAILGLASS might be H&A's telegraph/telegram/telex address, from B
My H&A lampshade has has different codes but the same lettering in the same font as the one that started this topic. In addition to cold-painted enamel, not, I think, fired on, it also has a band of cold transfer decoration, again, I believe, not fired on.
Please be cautious about assuming that H&A made their advertising ashtray, a common type of assumption in all collecting spheres. In Yorkshire both Wood Brothers and Bagley could have made and supplied that ashtray very cheaply, and I think it more than likely that one of the two did. In the interests of accuracy I've said on this on my ashtray price and information ticket. Another example â€” I recall a year or two ago coming across a collector who assumed that a specialist papermill had made their own office typing paper!!!
Finally, I love the information about the wrestler and the fascist sympathiser. Brilliant.
