The threading will be machine done. William J. Hodgetts patented a glass-threading machine 6th May 1876.

That is wonderful, bubbles are gotten by using a dip mould... same principle as ordinary controlled bubbles but with formers instead of spikes to force the air under the surface and then elongating a bit more by the look of it. Quite a find, charity shop ?

Hi Guys, thanks so much for your help! Sorry about having it upside :) i have added a new pic the right way around.
It think it reads Rd 137188 not the '72' as suggested? i could be wrong of course.
I found it at a fleamarket, its was very inexpensive, it could see it the great work that had gone in to it and when I noticed the sig I thought 'im having you'  :)
Something you like, mail me! :)

Christine did you mean 137288? fits with St & W moresque -
What ho, the two is slightly differently done compared to the 1 at the beginning - it's a very scratchy mark but I think it is a 2 nonetheless.

I agree with M, it was the difference between the characters that was obvious.
