RD 791447? [aka Libochovice #1479] – registration details, please?

(1/1)

agincourt17:
A pressed glass bowl standing on four rectangular feet. 8½ inches top rim diameter x 5½ inches high. According to the owner, one of the feet bears the raised RD number 791447.

RD 791447 not listed on http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/regnos09.htm

(I’ve checked with the owner in case the number was mis-read, - because RD 790447 was registered by Jules Lang & Son on 17 February 1934 - but they insist the number is indeed 791447. )

Can anyone tell be me if RD 791447 is in the Blue Book? If so, can they let me have the registrant and date of registration, please.

I knew that many of the ‘missing’ glass RD numbers on www.greatglass.co.uk belonged to importers or agents (Hoskins, Rose & Co., and Jules Lang & Son, for example), and sure enough, this particular piece appears in the pre-1958 Libochovice catalogue as pattern no. 1479 (ref. Marcus Newhall’s Sklo Union CD-ROM catalogues).

Anne:
How interesting, Fred. It looks like a variant of the pattern registered under RD 786706 (Hoskins Rose, 1933) and which I have examples of on the GTS site as the 147x series: http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms15/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&Itemid=54&limitstart=3 - the differences being the shape of the feet and the curled handle-type things on the one above. 

RD 791447 isn't in the Blue Book, by the way. Could you add a copy of the pic above to the RD album please? :)

Oh and as this doesn't really belong in British Glass, I'll move it over to Czech for you.
