I think I might have to re-attribute these, because of this info, Greg.
Because of never having seen one pre-'74, I had had to assume Dobson.
I'm also very fond of this design in the "Helter-skelter" shape, with a very big caveat - they HAVE to be the ones with tons of "stuff" going on in them and loads of iridesence on the outside.
There are a few things loosely based on this design, such as top hat shaped objects, but they do NOT have the busyness or anything interesting happening at all. Quite dull and boring. I have assumed these are post-Dobson.
I reckon it would have been over my budget too, Greg.
I prefer "unsigned" bits. Far more affordable.
(John's presence has now been noted :hi: )
Wasn't there something about all the bits for the american market having to be signed? And perhaps if these all went over the pond, that might explain the scarcity on this side?
Certainly, most of the massive Rosenthal bottles I've encountered have been in the states. One of mine came from America. (back in the days when I could afford to get things shipped over and pay the tax as well as the bid price..... :cry:)
