Lead Crystal trinket set - flashed or cut to clear
« on: September 04, 2014, 02:12:25 PM »
Any ideas who might have made this please?  Its quite lovely and well made. Unfortunately the labels are import labels just showing that it is 'foreign' (shown below), so not much help.
It might be French or Czech, but so far I've been unable to find a match.  I don't think it is Val Saint Lambert, and I've had a look through glassmusterbuch.de without success.
Thanks for looking :)

Hi Anne! I have a note in my ref files that this is thought to be Czech (no idea which maker though yet) and I also have a ref image of the same set which has the RD no. 876834 on it - as this is beyond the numbers included in the Blue Book and Great-Glass lists, we may need to ask if Paul would look it up for us on a future visit to the Nat. Archives at Kew.  I'm assuming yours don't have the RD no on them?

Editing to add (after a mooch through the Nat. Archives catalogue) NA ref and date covered...

Many thanks 't'other Anne :)
I've had a good look, but no RD no.
I'll keep looking to see if I can pin it down some.  Please feel free to add the images to your website if they are of any use.

Here is another set in the same pattern, this time with the addition of a pin dish.

I also have photos of a part set in the same pattern, also with a pin dish.

Neither of these sets had a registered design number.

Does anyone have photos to show of sets in this pattern flashed in amethyst, ruby or other colours, please?

Fred.

Different designs flashed in amber or blue with 9 piece sets appear in 1930/32 Hill Ouston catalogues, I have some 50s ones too so might even find this set. Not reached them yet. Label looks a bit like the ones they used.
