The firm of Whittingham and Percival was based in Pendleton, Salford, and lasted for a few brief years in the latter 1870s.

Here are some photos of an uncommon clear glass salt from the works. It is 3 inches across x 1.7 inches high. There is a registration lozenge for 6 June 1876 to the interior base. The exterior sides have decoration of repeating oval panels Ė diamonds in one, and horizontals in the next and the underside of the base has an impressed star.

A batch of Whittingham & Percival designs (RDs 301058 to 301067) were registered on the same date, but only five of them (RDs 301063-301067) were for salts.

NeilH has photos of two of the salts (RDs 301063 and 301067) on his Manchester glass website at
so, as this salt is different, it must, by elimination, be either RD 301064, 301065, or 301066.

I will draw Neilís attention to this post and see if he can provide a precise identification for the RD number of this particular salt.
