Edinburgh and Leith pattern help needed.
« on: February 17, 2012, 01:43:54 PM »
Hi can anyone identify this pattern for me please.  I'm having no luck at all.  Its got the elongated tail on the &.

I can't seem to find the pattern/design anywhere.

Many thanks

Hi everyone

thanks for the replies so far.

Yes its an early Edinburgh Crystal mark.  I know the elongated tail dates it between 1927 and 1939. But trying to identify the pattern is driving me bonkers.

Wouldn't know the pattern from a hole in the ground, but can I say your photography of it is excellent!  :smg:

With my moderator hat on, I have changed the thread title to expand on the "E&L" bit.

You might already have tried looking through the patterns on Replacements.com but just in case you don't know of them, here is a link to their Edinburgh Crystal pages.  I have spent many hours going cross-eyed trying to identify patterns through this site, sometimes successfully.

Good luck, Iain

Thanks Carolyn not bad for my first attempt and with my phone camera too!

Iain, I think I have been through this page but in a slightly different format. Thanks though.  Oh yes, I know what you mean.  After a while I could see my pattern in every item I looked at!!
