Jane Webb & Joseph Hammond Boat (19 December 1872)
« on: November 25, 2013, 08:06:21 AM »
IS THIS A JANE WEBB BOAT?

Please view photos & see what you think.

It is the same shape as the registration drawings, see references below, but has VERTICAL rather than HORIZONTAL lines.
Has anyone ever seen the real thing with HORIZONTAL lines?

The lozenge is quite clear as 19, I, A, 3 which fits perfectly for the Jane Webb date.

It has got to go along with hundreds of other pieces, and would be nice to have the considered opinion of probably more knowledgeable people than me before releasing it upon the world.

Here are photos of a Jane Webb & Joseph Hammond… RD 268883 (19 December 1872 – Parcel 3) boat-shaped flower trough in accord with the design representation.  ‘Clinker-built’ sides and plain base externally frosted, ‘bobbled’ top edge, sloping flat stern with the appropriate  registry date lozenge to the exterior. 11 ¾ inches long x 2 9/16 inches wide  x 1 15/16 high at the prow.

Here are some photos of a triangular flower trough by Jane Webb & Joseph Hammond acting &c… RD 263540, 21 July 1872 – Parcel 6.

It has the same vertically ribbed sides, beaded top edge, and beaded base as Rob’s boat trough shown in the opening post of this thread.

I think that it is quite probable that Jane Webb &c made a version of the boat trough to match the triangular flower trough (and perhaps other similar pieces within a range of troughs). The original plunger could have been used to fashion the interior, and the mould for the ‘clinker-built’ exterior either exchanged or modified to make the ribbed version of the boat trough.

The frosting on the exterior of the ‘clinker-built’ version would, of course, have been applied using hydrofluoric acid after the trough was removed from the mould and could easily have been an optional finish.
