Just out of interest Fred, you mentioned height as 3 1/2" in your original post. Was that supposed to read 5 1/2 as the former figure would make the swan unfeasibly stunted!

Oh wait, ignore that last question - the length was also shorter...

Hello:

Along with the advertisements in the December 1888 Pottery & Glass Gazette, there was also a letter from Edward Moore which in part states "We beg leave to inform you that by an arrangement with the Executors of the late Joseph Webb, Coalbourn Hill Glass Works, Stourbridge, we have become the proprietors of the whole stock of the moulds employed by that eminent Firm. These moulds are now in use here, and we enclose lithograph drawings of the leading articles..."  So yes, we can document that Moore did indeed acquire the Webb moulds.

I recently came across a pair of these in plain glass, as that variety hasn't been shown here I though I would add them. They are large at a Height of 5.75in and Width 7in. They contain little or no lead in the mix and the registration diamond has almost faded off on one, and invisible on the other, which makes me think they could be from the Edward Moore phase, produced off a worn mould.

I may have shown TNA details before - unfortunately, I now can't remember, but if I have then ignore these.           Brain now in gear  -  obviously not looking properly  -  I think these pix are better, and seems I didn't post the Register page before anyway - so not an entirely wasted exercise.

I thought Iíd share this Webb swan in an unusual peach colour, on first glance I thought it canít be an original due to the colour but under close inspection I have found a very faint lozenge in the correct place as we have another with a prominent lozenge in a more common clear frosted colour . Seeing the info on this thread perhaps this was made by Edward Moore? As he bought the Webb moulds. I think Davidson later bought Edward Mooreís moulds.  I donít recall seeing another Edward Moore item in this colour? Thanks
