Thank you Anne :)
I think I've realised from reading other articles that there aren't two Robert Gooddens, it's just that his name has been variously spelt incorrectly lol.

 it's just that I said earlier in the thread that I thought there were two Roberts, one Gooden and another Goodden, and I thought I'd originally chosen the correct spelling.  I've now realised that he is one and the same designer, it's just that all seem to variously get his name wrong  ;D

To update my previous findings, then under MATTHEY CRINKLES can be added Green. I would also be most surprised if a Blue one doesn't surface at some time either.

Why has it got Parker in relief script on the base?   Parker pens?

Just to update and correct this - the full name of the company is Parker Pipe Co. Ltd. The Parker Beacon was actually a cigarette lighter.

Just been looking up Parker company ...because of the Goodden ashtray I have found.. and see it was started by Alfred Dunhill so I guess these ashtrays were quite prestigous at that time. Any way I love it (Even though I hate smoking) and I totally agree the design is brilliant !!

Alfred Dunhill started Parker as a means to offload those pipes that didn't come up to scratch. Seconds if you like. But it must have proved quite a successful venture given the number of these ashtrays and other smoking memorabilia attributed to Parker.
