Cheryl  -  I'd love to join you, but that tag name worries me too much - I know what vultures do ;) ;D

Having trouble with some emails to you Fred - they've been bouncing back occasionally - I've tried that cross one twice now.          How about I put it on the Board instead, or would you prefer it privately?

Thanks for trying with the candlestick pics, Paul.

I think the easiest way is for me to post it as a separate topic with the details and photos I originally sent you, and then you can put the registration details and design representation as a reply. If that gives satisfactory results, I will post the other mystery RDs as individual topics.

I'll try to post the candlestick topic later tonight.

Fred.

o.k. will wait for your post.

Pix now attached of the three Greener items.....................    Greener must have been one of the first to use a camera to record their Registration details, so in fact what you see in their original factory representation is usually the real thing.

Wasn't the quality of the photography superb in those Henry Greener design representations?

Almost 150 years on and, even with all the technical advances in lighting and equipment, most of us still seem to struggle to achieve better results when photographing glassware.

I agree - extremely good quality for the period  -  personally, I think that's where Dirk got all his ideas from ;)
