Molineaux Webb flower stand - pattern 8209
« on: February 17, 2018, 04:04:45 PM »
One of my best ever finds today on the Portobello Road - Molineaux Webb pattern 8209, flower stand with ruby flash, late 1860s. The stand also looks like it could be contemporary, it has a mark for EB & Co, which appears to be Edwin Blyde & Co of Sheffield, active from the mid 1850s onwards.

This piece is basically the 8209 celery where the stem has been removed and replaced with a glass stud, balancing it within the stand. Rather confusing, 8209 had two different types of decoration as seen in pattern book images (also used on a cross hatch key design), but it seems like the one I have is the main decoration, also used on comports, finger bowl, basin, ewer & glass etc. It's the first time I have seen it in the wild.

I'm also including a close up of the design used on this piece, it is quite distinctive. If anyone has a piece with this frosted design on it, it could be Molineaux Webb.

congratulations Neil  -  marvelous find - well done.               Was it the Portobello Road that claimed to have the right to sell during the hours of darkness and not be challenged legally, whatever the origins of the goods - though possibly those circumstances now changed   -  or was that a myth :)
