Thank you for showing these, Mike.

I will add them to the GMB RD database shortly.

Fred.

Thanks Fred for your hard work loading these to the gallery. Out of interest do you know if this is the earliest registration for Greener. Kind regards Mike

There were 5 Angus & Greener design registrations preceding RD 209161.

Jenny Thompson (page 14) gives them as:

RD 117501 of 21 December 1858 - Parcel 6 (Dish)
RD 197703 of 24 May 1866 - Parcel 1 (Bottom of decanter)
RD 197704 of 24 May 1866 - Parcel 1 (Decanter)
RD 200233 of 25 August 1866 -Parcel 6 (Dish or butter float)
RD 205812 of 26 January 1867 -Parcel 4 (Decanter and stopper)

She also shows the design representation for RD 197704.

I haven't seen examples of RD 200233 or 205812, and they are not illustrated in Thompson.

See below for photos of RD 117501, and the following post for RDs 197703 & 197704.

Fred.

Blimey, thanks for all that info Fred, I think the Jenny Thompson book is one of dads favourites I shall have to find a copy. 209161 is the earliest Greener we have. I shall look at taking some piccies over the holidays of the Gladstone and Peabody series.
Thanks Mike
