Bernard C. ...I just bought one of another one of these 3  pear basket on ebay and it has a LID with more fruit on...cherry's, strawberries etc . It is uranium  and the seller thinks it was bought in France. I will post some pictures as soon as it arrives. :)

the pear basket with lid has arrived at last and is gorgeous !! See pictures below..... it has pears, cherrys, strawberries  and grapes on so I guess it was a jam pot. The lid is difficult to get on and off as the cherry knob on top is very slippery and must have easily got broken. Its the first one I have seen with a lid !! ;D

And vastly superior to one with a nasty metal bit stuck onto it!  ;D

Angela That's lovely.   ... and useful, as the lid may be the essential element in identifying it from a trade catalogue.   It's a spectacular piece.   It is such fine workmanship that it has to be a well known mouldmaker and manufacturer.   I am now even more convinced that it's not British.

Yes Bernard I think you are right, the seller is sure it was bought in France in the 1940's or 50's. The detail in the fruit on the lid is perfect!!

Thanks Anne I am very pleased with it !! I have asked another friend who collects glass and he has suggested this piece may be by Sars or possibly Choisy le Roi ?
