I agree the 2 pictures out of your catalogue look almost certainly to be the same as my sugar and creamer.

I also believe that pictures from catalogues are also not always identical to the finished pieces. I think unless proved other wise you have to say that they are early M&W pieces

Thanks Roy

Here are a couple of photos of the sugar basin to match Roy’s Sherwood & Co. cream jug in the first post of this topic thread.  The basin is 5 inches high, with a bowl rim diameter of 5 inches. The sugar basin is RD 67468 ( and bears the lozenge for 15 February 1850).

(Permission to re-use of the images of this item on GMB granted by mfor15).

The cream jug, with the same registration date, is RD 67467.   

There were only two other designs registered by George Sherwood and Co. in 1850, both registered on 23 May 1850 – Parcel 4:
RD 69516  tumbler
RD 69517  sugar Basin
so Roy’s sugar basin, also shown in the first post of this topic thread, must be RD 69517.

Does anyone now have a photo of the tumbler RD 69516 to share?

I’ve trawled through the early glass registrations (Thompson, Slack, National Archives online catalogue) and it would seem that the four registrations mentioned here are the sum total of glass designs registered by George Sherwood & Co., Eccleston Flint Glass Works, St. Helens.

Only 3 years needed to ‘square the circle’ – sort of.

At last a photo of Sherwood’s RD 69516 of 23 May 1850 – Parcel 4, but not just a heavy press-moulded ‘tumbler’, rather a tumbler with an applied handle. 11cm high, and with the appropriate registry date lozenge in the base.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by Chris Walton).

A photo of a plain tumbler (without the handle) still needed though.

Fred.
