A clear pressed ale glass with a hexagonal baluster stem, plain circular foot, and a tapered bowl with six facets impressed into the bottom part of the exterior.  The bowl interior bears a clear date lozenge for 28 November 1866 – Parcel 5.
The registrants were Michael & Lewis Beck of 7 Sun Street, Bishopsgate, London, and the corresponding RD number is 204182. (This seems to be the Beck’s only registered design),

Michael and Lewis Beck traded as Glass and China Merchants (or dealers, depending on the particular census returns).  Michael first appears in the trade in the 1851 census (aged 29) and Lewis (who was 4 years older) seems to join him sometime between 1861 and 1871. Lewis is trading alone by the 1881 census.
