I think this might be by Molineaux and Webb, it shares very similar design features to 395 and 415 in this link, any thought's to a maker or age?.

Twisted and leaning to one side on the stem, i'm guessing the top was too heavy for the base as it cooled. Three mould lines, a bit of a ring for such a thick piece of glass and no UV glow.

The glass is half an inch thick, no markings.


6 1/2 inches in height, 5 inches across the rim and 3 1/2 inches across the base.

Any thought's welcome regards Chris.

It would appear to be their pattern 416 honey (minus lid) - an unregistered design, so a good guess as to the manufacturer, Chris.

I've found an example of pattern 423, which you might call a sister to 416 as it is virtually the same, with the body being decorated by crescent moons instead of full. It's slightly shorter than 416 but weights the same, bit more chunky.
