hello and welcome to the GMB
- I think you are due for a medal having apparently waded through the entire glass pavillon site, the EAPG pages and British pressed glass patterns - a lot of looking by the sound of it, but glad that you had a positive result and found a maker for your piece.
Of course, when a piece has an inside lip then it is obvious that there should be an accompanying lid but, having said that, pieces like this with scalloped or frilled rims can be misleading and tempt you to think that what you have is the entire thing. Suppose it's the idea that we tend to think lidded pieces have only smooth/flat rims, generally.
Apolgies for :hj: - am posting a picture of an Ed. Moore piece from the 80013 suite with a scalloped rim - and without any inside lip - that I'd have put money on was not intended to have a lid. Shows how wrong you can be. In fact I'm in need of a lid for my piece, so if anyone.............
hope you will show some more of your pressed pieces, and look forward to seeing your pix.
In view this is your first post - would also add my personal congratulations on providing a well thought out piece of text, and showing that you have give much thought to researching your piece.
Will leave Lustrousstone to answer your last question regarding pieces that may or may not have included the word 'Honey'/or others - re purchase tax avoidance.
