Sowerby 2707 set
« on: April 13, 2017, 12:35:11 AM »
I am stuck for where to look next...   in the Sowerby catalogue list 41 page 6 (hand-dated 1960s on the cover) there are just two trinket sets mentioned.  The 2638 - 5 piece in pink and pink matt, and the 2707 - 5 piece set in flint (clear).

The illustration in the catalogue is very poor and I cannot make out what either set looks like from it, but we do have the 2638 from previous catalogues. However, the 2707 does not show up in the earlier catalogues on 20th century glass, and I cannot find it mentioned on either of the two Sowerby CDs from Glen Thistlewood, nor anywhere else...  so, has anyone seen a reference to the Sowerby pattern 2707 anywhere else please?
