Large, clear pressed glass footed bowl; height 6.75 inches x diameter 9.5 inches. Decorated with imitation cut pattern. Raised RD number 814528  on foot.

RD 814528 should have been registered sometime between 29 July and 24 September 1936. Yet another 1930s RD number not listed in
http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/regnos10.htm

Is it in the Blue Book, please? If so, could some kind GMB member provide me with the registration details, please?

The above July and September 1936 registrations were by Jules Lang & Sons, and this bowl certainly looks ‘Jules Lang’-ish to me.

Thank you very much, Keith.

Many of the Hoskins & Rose-registered pieces seem to have been made in Czechoslovakia, so I'll see if I can find the pattern in the catalogues on Marcus Newhall's Sklo Union CD-ROM.

As can be seen from the Kew Register, this is another fugitive showing CLASS IV - but as Keith has said, it has found its way into the Blue Book, which bit surprising as seems a lot of the CLASS IV registered pieces slip through the net.

Thank you very much for checking, Paul.

It certainly confirms the maxim that 'if you can't find something you are probably looking in the wrong place'. (I think there is an old Chinese proverb along the same lines that says that 'if you are searching for fish don't start by looking in a tree').

The only conclusive way of checking on these 'missing' or 'fugitive numbers is via the registers at Kew, and I really appreciate your efforts on my behalf.
