Henry Greener pressed glass 'colliery truck' RD 218710, 1893
« on: August 09, 2012, 12:33:36 PM »
Here is the Henry Greener take on the pressed glass 'colliery truck' (most usually seen as Heppell's RD 346543 of 1880).
Greener version Rd 218710 (registered on 20 Seoptember 1893). 2 inches tall.

According to Thompson, p15, the design registration was for a 'wheelbarrow with gadroons' and she illustrates it as such.

I know less than nothing of these things  -  is it a salt as Roy says, or might it be like the Gladstone Bags - perhaps more ornamental than practicable  -  unfortunately, there's nothing on the original drawing to help.
To jump from a wheelbarrow to a colliery truck and maintain the same Rd. No. seems a bit tenuous to say the least  -  imagine saying to your gardener  -  sorry, you can't have the wheelbarrow today, you've got to push a colliery truck!     -    all on the basis that they both show gadroons and pimples, and the gadroons are barely gadroons anyway.

Anyway, since Henry Greener's original Registration 218710 is based on a wheelbarrow, here is the National Archives image of that Registration dated 20th September 1893.                   The National Archives Representations reference is BT 50/198.
