A carnival creamer from museum's collection - unknown
« on: July 17, 2013, 07:07:06 PM »
Despite all our efforts we were unable to find neither origin nor maker - can you help, please  :)

Thomas Joyce of Inchicore Pressed Glass Museum has got a clear version in the unknown section too.

Thank you!
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

The pattern is called "Parquet" but the maker is not known. I am certain it was produced by an English company . .  but I do not know which. My evidence is a butter dish (same pattern) with a label that reads "Amberite - Made in England".

Thank you very, very much, Glen!
This is the closest that we can get then!

That's the closest we can get with factual information, Pamela. I can guess who the maker might have been, but I don't have strong evidence to back it up yet. If anyone knows what factory used the "Ambrite" name and label, that would be a big step forward.

(Please note—I spelled "Ambrite" wrongly in my first post. Blame the heat wave  ::) It is definitely AMBRITE).
