that's a great piece of glass  -  particularly like the machine acid etching  -  almost makes you want to have the lid re-silvered :)

Fred .........  in my reply No. 6, are you still waiting for me to get the Kew Pix  -  can't remember now whether I did anything about them or not :-\

Thank you for showing this 'marmalade', Chris. I will add the pictures to the GMB RD database as being from the RD bundle  "288498/9/500  -  16.01.1875  -  butter/marmalade/marmalade" and tweak the entries accordingly if more info. come to light.

Paul - the only Seago pictures I have are for the ice pail RD 289821 of 9 March 1875 (which are on the GMB RD database) , and would love to see any other Seago RD pics in due course.

Fred.

this cut and etched marmalade is Reg. 288500, and differs from the other marmalade No. 288499 in body shape and pattern of cutting and etching - and these differences are substantial enough to avoid any confusion.
Both designs show vertical cutting around the base plus mechanical etching in the upper half of the body........   oddly enough - as you'll see in due course - the original factory drawings, for both, show a hooped handle, and not a central finial on the EPNS lid as appears in the photo from Chris.       
I have Kew pix for all three of these Seago, Johnson Registrations - 288498/99/500 from 16.01.1875  -  the butter and two marmalades, but need to re-photograph both marmalades for better close up size, so will show 288498 only for now.

Of the other five Registrations mentioned in my earlier post No. 6  ................... 

280660 is an ink well as stated, and will be included in the 'Ink Wells' thread in the coming days.

297633 is a design for a cruet of some description, and I also need to visit Kew for this item.

303996 is a butter, and I've included this one here too.

309484/85 are another two I need from Kew, so will be a few days yet before I can post.

Just as a suggestion, might it be of any benefit to include this Registrants name in the subject heading ??  -  might not make any difference of course...............   it does get confusing with some of these pressed glass threads when they become heavily visited and acquire a lot more information, and pictures etc., than just the Registration No. they started out with. :)

Thank you, Paul, for posting the design representations for the Seago, Johnson & Co. RDs 288498 and 303996.

I will add them to the GMB RD database this morning.

Fred.
