A pair of clear pressed glass decanters bearing RD 709314.

Number not at http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/regnos08.htm

Is the number in the Blue Book? If so, could a kind GMB member provide me with the precise registration details, please?

The number falls between 19th and 28th November 1924, Fred, but is not in the Blue Book. Methinks this is another one for the lookup sticky topic. :)

Josef Inwald's Jacobean (Lord).

You can read about it on my old website (please note it is in archive form - we keep it for collectors to use). I will copy an extract from what I wrote on the page about it, below:

"On November 21, 1924, Clayton Mayers further registered a set of items in the Jacobean pattern with the number 709314. The copyright on this number was extended through to November 1934. A splendid, iridized decanter is known with this number moulded into it."

Ahhh thank you Glen. I thought it looked like Lord but this later number threw me totally.

These decanters are not pressed though, mould blown surely? Saying that, the stoppers could be pressed.

We've quite recently had this information on the Board, including Glen's original and very interesting research data, which can be found here...
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,48998.msg276260.html#msg276260......    provide you have the stamina to read through the other bits and bobs.
Incidentally, the height is c. 10.5" (270mm).

However, I feel deprived - my own example of this decanter is without a Regd. No...........although it does carry the words  JACOBEAN REGD  in relief down at the very foot, so there is no doubt as to it's provenance.               Fred doesn't mention these trade mark words, so presumably the pair being shown here don't have them.

For very obvious reasons, these aren't pressed in the sense that a plunger has been used, and although I don't know for certain, I'd suggest that they are mould blown, pneumatically, but I'd agree that the stoppers, being solid, would be pressed.

It would be interesting to know whether Natalie's pieces (can I say that) have the mirrored bases, or not.
