I need photos of one or two items of Manchester area glass from 1840s to 1860s period, if anyone can help?
I am writing an article for the Glass Cone magazine of the Glass Association about a family named Walton who manufactured in Bolton, Ancoats, Hulme and Salford, latterly Newton le Willows, 1840s to 1900, making flint glass. The image or images are to illustrate it.
I would give full acknowledgement of course.
The item or items does not have to be identified, in fact it is better if it is generic, 'of a type', but it does have to be 1840s to 1860s. For instance, a common bowl or creamer ,'penny goods', 'thought to be ....' would be better than something which has a particularly distinct Percival Vickers/Molineaux Webb pattern. Other than some very late pieces kept by the family, I have no items of glass which have been identified as made by the Waltons, so I need something which was typical and could be said to be like what they probably made.
1840s would be ideal, but anything considered!
Also, the image/s need to be of a good resolution for printing.
Also, I need them within the next few days!
