Anne, Raymond Notley's book quote confirms and adds to the Ivo Haanstra quote I mentioned earlier, and yes the patterns Ivan and Marcel certainly look like a possible match although I can't see too clearly. That advert is said to be from 1916, with an imminent ban on imported domestic items soon ahead, the ad is said to have an urgent tone, which ties in with the factory being in France, and also perhaps Lang exporting to Australia?

I think I may have read somewhere that design registrations only last 25 years before copyright runs out? This was regarding some Whitefriars designs so I don't know how relevant that info is for these designs but, if Sowerby moulds were purchased 1905, Jules Lang could have registered 24 years later in 1929, assuming Sowerby Registered them pre 1904. Hmmm...

Were the Lemington glassworks actually part of "the Sowerby" (Sowerby's Ellison Glass Works Ltd). Cottle seems to imply it wasn't; rather that it was another company (the unlimited Sowerby & Co.) run by George Sowerby

Christine, I've not read Cottle, but I do have a scan from a 1914 Kelly's trade directory for Northumberland (copy attached) which give Lemington Glassworks Ltd, Lemington, Scotswood. Is this the same place, do you think?

Yes. There's a bit on the web about it but it wasn't Sowerby & Co by then it was General Electric and making light bulbs, etc. The confusion arises because "the Sowerby" was Sowerby & Co. until 1881 when it became limited but couldn't use Sowerby & Co. Ltd because it belonged to a Lincolnshire company.
