Sowerby Registrations from 14th May 1878 - Parcel 9.
« on: December 09, 2017, 02:45:08 PM »
The Board of Trade allocated twelve Reg. Nos. to the factory on the above date  -  one of which, No. 321373 we have discussed very recently and a copy of the factory drawing has already been provided.         Of the remaining eleven there appear to be four 321372, 75, 78 and 79 - for which I either don't have copies, or if I do they're worse than useless, so these I hope to find on my next trip to Kew  ............   and in the meantime the seven I do have now follow.                            We're back to those blue pencil drawings, which are of poor quality at the best of time, so apologies in advance  -  some are o.k. some are very poor - perhaps Fred can work his magic on the latter:-)                     Four pix initially, then three to follow on the next post.

Thank you very much for showing these, Paul.

I will try and get them correlated with their Sowerby pattern numbers over the next couple of days, always assuming that today's raging blizzard doesn't deprive us of our electricity.

Sowerby RD 321368 appears to correlate with Sowerby pattern 1324 covered butter dish, shown on page 6 of Sowerby pattern book XI (1885). Cottle (page 100) does not offer a correlation.

Sowerby RD 321369 correlates with Sowerby pattern 1397 sugar box base, shown on page 50 of patten book XI (1885). Cottle (page 101) does not offer a correlation. Interstingly, the lid for the sugar box appears to have a separate design registration - somewhere within the registration bundle RD 318789 to 318795registered on 20 February 1873 -Parcel 3.

Sowerby RD 321370 correlates with Sowerby pattern 1318 covered butter dish, shown on page 6 of pattern book XI (1885). ). Cottle (page 101) does not offer a correlation.

Sowerby RD 321371 correlates with Sowerby pattern 1303 basket, shown on page 6 of Sowerby pattern book IX (1882). Cottle (page 101) gives a correct correlation.

Assuming that Cottle (page 101) is correct with his correlation, Sowerby RD 321372 should correlate with Sowerby pattern 1308 tripod vase, shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882).

We already have Sowerby RD 321373 correctly correlating with Sowerby pattern 1302 triple vase.

Cottle (page 101) correctly correlates Sowerby RD 321374 with Sowerby pattern 1301 2-handled basket, shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882).

Assuming that Cottle (page 101) is correct, Sowerby RD 321375 should correlate  with the Sowerby pattern 1310 vase, shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882). I don't have a reference photo of an actual example of this pattern.

Similarly, Sowerby RD 321376 should correlate with the Sowerby pattern 1307 triple base, shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882). ). I don't have a reference photo of an actual example of this pattern either.

Cottle (page 101) correctly correlates Sowerby 321377 with the Sowerby pattern 1304 vase, shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882). I don't have a reference photo of an actual example of this pattern.

I await Paul's Kew drawing for Sowerby RD 321378 in due course. Cottle (page 101) doesn't offer a Sowerby pattern correlation for this RD so, for the moment, this is in abeyance.

Assuming Cottle (page 101)  is correct with his correlation, Sowerby RD 321379 should correlate with the Sowerby pattern 1306 handled basket with diamond-shaped body, as shown on page 6 of pattern book IX (1882). Again, I am lacking a photo of an actual example in this pattern.
