No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Ansell Bros. 1932 Trinket Set Advert
« on: July 15, 2019, 05:59:48 PM »
Images are from a 1932 Pottery Gazette advert. 

Ansell Bros. are listed under "London Merchants, Factors, and Importers Selling China, Earthenware and Glassware." but not under British glass manufacturers.

They're not listed in either my 1922 or 1945 directories.

I've had a very brief look through the GTS site, but haven't been able to spend long looking.  (My daughter's getting married on Thursday!  ;D busy, busy busy!!)

Ooh! Thanks Lindsey, I've not come across Ansell before. They are clearly importers and wholesale distributors, rather than manufacturers.  I will try and match the design to a known pattern to find who they imported from. :)

Hope the wedding goes well tomorrow!
Cheers! Anne, da tekniqual wizzerd
