Pressed glass crown shape bowl with Rgd.No.815742
« on: April 08, 2012, 02:44:48 PM »
I found this interesting pressed glass bowl in the shape of a crown.  It has a very faint impressed mark "REGISTERED No. 815742" on the inside base rim which made it  difficult to spot.  I think the third digit is a 5, which would be registered to Jules Lang & Son and dated 10th Oct. 1936.  This would make it coincide with the coronation of George VI on 12th May 1937 I think most probably.   So not an English made one if I'm not mistaken.

Hello Ann  -  assume you are suggesting not British made because Jules Lang were London based importers - with a manufacturing operation in France.     If you google the GMB search, there is a quite a varied amount of data on the company, and thought this might be the reason.  If it's not my apologies. :)      Suppose not completely out of the question this might have been sold to Lang by a u.k. based manufacturer.

That's right ;).  My understanding is that Jules Lang are just importers, so the bowl had to have been made overseas, whether in France or elsewhere.  Although your idea that Jules Lang might have bought them from a UK manufacturer is interesting.  Haven't a clue about that though ??? :)   
They did buy moulds from Sowerby, Edward Moore and Percival Vickers according to Ivo's book and had them produced by Valerysthal and Portieux in France, but that was earlier than this bowl's reg. date.
