Sowerby Tynesyde Part Trinket Set in Deep Turquoise Blue.
« on: May 31, 2012, 11:16:52 PM »
For Anne or anyone else that may be interested, I just saw this Ebay listing for a part Sowerby Tynesyde Trinket Set in a deep turquoise colour, very pretty and not a colour I've seen it in before.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Deco-glass-dressing-table-set-Beautifull-blue-/180895910026?pt=UK_Antiques_DecorativeAntiques_Collectables_EH&hash=item2a1e3c888a

I also noticed the candlesticks are not the same as the catalogue depiction. http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/glass_catalogues/sowerbyglass_catalogues/sowerbyglass_catalogue1933-09.htm

Does anyone know if these are actually Sowerby Candlesticks or a lucky colour match from elsewhere? If they are a redesign of the Tynesyde sticks at a later date, or an earlier design, then it would tie in with our speculation on the possible "Maid" set, of Sowerby being quite flexible with some of their trinket set pieces.

Strangley I have just come across the candlesticks in another set.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/82039773/vintage-antique-blue-glass-vanity-set

Does anyone recognise it? There is a RD number which is hard to read possibly 781083?

this No. doesn't appear in the 'Blue Book'  -  which is the Glass Asscociation check list of Registration Nos. from 1908 to 1945.   However, the 781 series of Nos. do cover a likely period for the registration of such pre war articles as trinket sets  i.e. February to March 1933.       Tell us which Nos. are you certain of, and we may then be able to determine which No. it is supposed to be, possibly  -  there aren't too many in the series, something like sixteen I believe.        Where are you reading the No. from, by the way  -  do you have these sticks?

That blue is just so Sowerby! :)  I have the pineapple and bows bowl in the same colour:

The candlesticks are a puzzle though, as they look like a match for colour but I've not seen the style before, nor do I recognise the rest of the ETSY set.   :-\

Thanks for the interest Paul. :)

Lovely bowls Anne, such a super colour! After seeing the Etsy set, I realised they probably aren't part of the Tynesyde set at another date, I've seen the Etsy set one other time only, also this week on Ebay in clear, no candlesticks though and a random ring tree.

The ETSY set is shown in the Conway book on Australian Glass found in Australia, where it states that the set is seen with Rd. Nos. on each piece, as follows:
751081 ringholder
751082 tray
751083 powder bowls
751084 candlesticks

The Rd. Nos. date from 30 Dec 1929 and the number range 751081-4 was registered by Jules Lang & Son who, as we know, was an importer of glassware.    

(Source: A Century of Household Glassware in Australia, by Kevin & Margaret Conway. Warning - many of the attributions in Conway are questionable. )

Edited: description of Conway corrected to remove incorrect impression that it covers Australian made glass

Interesting Anne! Possibly Australian then.

I think not Jayne.  The Conway book covers glass found in Australia (sorry, my earlier post didn't make that clear so I've corrected my wording above to clarify it) but made all over the world (see an earlier topic referring to the issue of attributions here: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,9585.0.html), but my feeling is still that this is a set made in Europe and imported into the UK / distributed worldwide by Jules Lang.
