Henry Greener Blue Slag Glass Sugar Bowl & Creamer
« on: August 29, 2015, 05:31:36 PM »
Henry Greener blue slag glass sugar bowl and creamer decorated in Shamrocks , Thistles & Roses, both marked with the Greener trade mark, the first mark I believe as not 100% clear.

There is also a taller pedestal sugar bowl than the one shown here. There is a green slag glass sugar bowl listed as Sowerby at present on ebay in Australia the same as the one shown here.
Height of sugar bowl 4" diameter 5.25"
Height of creamer 4.5"

Thank you for showing these, Roy.

The trademark is definitely the 1st Lion mark (c1875 - c 1885).

I attach photos of the tall-pedestal sugar bowl and a matching creamer in green marbled glass, and also in white opaque glass (all bearing the 1st lion trademark but no RD number).

A matching dish or underplate in white opaque glass; diameter approximately 5.5 inches. Marked with the 1st lion trademark.

An interesting comparison, I think, is Henry Greener's 'Beaconsfield' commemorative sugar & creamer RD 325547 of 31 August 1878.

In addition to the specific Beaconsfield commemorative decoration, these also have the shamrock, thistle and rose embossed decoration, and the overall shape and style of the pieces is very similar to those shown in the opening posts.

The date of the Beaconsfield design registration also correlates well with the 1st lion trademark ( although the Beaconsfield pieces only bear the registry date lozenge).

Thank you for showing this, Chris. Nice photos.

No, I haven't come across one like it before, so I will add it to my growing list of unregistered Henry Greener designs.

Fred.
