Percival Vickers Registration 75942 dated 29th June 1887.

Described in the Kew archives as a 'Glass Marmalade' - although since the original design lacks a lid, then possibly not a container for permanent storage in the way we might now use a lidded jar for jam and marmalade............  perhaps used for serving at a single breakfast  - washed and cleaned - and this repeated whenever the dish was needed.

This item appears on Neil's marvelous pressed glass site - under P.V.  -  where four other unrelated shapes are shown, all presumably carrying this Reg. No. .........       I could be very wrong, but my opinion is that the features they all seem to share in common would suggest that the design features being protected were the saw-toothed rim and the pattern of upright mitres.
I don't know if we have one in the flesh so to speak on the Board's archive - Fred will know of course :)

Thank you for posting the design representation for PV 75942, Paul.

The GMB RD database has pictures of  a boat-shaped version of the marmalade and a rectangular version with cropped corners (as in the design representation).

There are photos of both the shapes on Neil's site at
plus a creamer and a thistle-shaped preserve dish in the pattern.

The boat- and thistle-shaped version are both shown sitting on a metal stand, and I suspect that the rectangular version may possibly have sat (either singly or perhaps as a pair) on a metal stand too.

Here are some photos of actual pieces for permanent reference. (Permission for the re-use of the photo of the rectangular version on the GMB is granted by Rod Crowshaw).
