Clear pressed glass dish, 14 x 14 x 6cm, with raised RD 252274 to interior base. Possibly a butter dish, and may have had a lid originally.

Cannot find RD in Thompson, Cottle or http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/regnos04.htm

Would have been registered in March or April 1895.

Does anyone have any idea who the registrant was or the precise date of registration, please?

And in fact not British made, despite having a British RD no.  so probably should be moved over to USA glass forum I think, Sid?

Thank you Sid, Paul S., Frank, Bernard C. and all previous contributors to the solution of this 'mystery'.

A salutory lesson that I should use the GMB search facility routinely before posting!

I will annotate my copies of Thompson, Slack etc. appropriately.

I am not sure that moving this to USA is the most appropriate action.  Because of the registry mark, I would anticipate that folks would search this forum not the USA forum to see what info may be available.  And as much as we suspect that the glass was made in the USA with a modified plunger (to provide the registry #), there remains the possibility that the glass was made in the UK under some kind of arrangement.

That makes sense Sid, so I'll move it back into Glass, where the other 2 topics currently reside also. :)

Here is a variant on the square RD 252274 dish.

Still rectangular, but this dish is only 4½ inches wide x 5¼ inches long x 2¼ inches tall. This example has an EPNS lid with ‘fish’ handle, so presumably a sardine dish.

I’ve seen other glass sardine dishes with an EPNS lid and an EPNS underplate (probably to protect the table or tablecloth from fishy drips), so this example may possibly be missing a matching EPNS underplate.
