Pressed glass small mug?
« on: September 09, 2015, 05:36:48 PM »
Hi,I was fully expecting a lozenge mark in the bottom of this little mug when I picked it up,but sadly no,not even a peacock head or an rd number,I think it is Victorian though with wear small bubbles and little white stones,probably a stylised plant although maybe rose hips,borage?any thoughts on this one thanks.

Not a pattern that I can remember seeing before.

Not shown in the PGCC catalogue of unregistered Davidson designs 1880-1890.

Fred.

Well if you haven't seen it Fred I guess we can draw a line under that one and move on.

Unless it's definitely known as British, it really should be posted in the general Glass section where it would get larger exposure. It definitely looks old to me, and the pressing is not that refined.
