Jobling designs 1932 - 1947
« on: November 08, 2019, 04:08:07 PM »
Unless anyone jumps in and requests I desist, the idea is to list all of the Jobling Designs Registered during the above period together with images taken from the original Company photographs now held at TNA, Kew.       
Some items are common and no doubt have appeared on the GMB a number of times - others vastly less so.
So, starting at the beginning with Rd. Nos. 777133 and 777134 both first Registered on 29th September 1932 - with corresponding Jobling catalogue Nos. 5000 and 6000.            Both Registrations were extended for one additional period of five years - thus both expired on 29th September 1942.

The sequence is chronological and follows Baker & Crowe, to whom of course much credit is due via their 'A COLLECTOR'S GUIDE TO JOBLING 1930s DECORATIVE GLASS' - Tyne and Wear County Council Museums Publication.         As always sincere thanks to the Trustees and Directors of The National Archives at Kew for their continued help and permission to photograph Registration archives.

thanks Christine.              Will take a while to gather images of all 62 designs for which there are Reg. Nos., and whether I ever find those designs which are without a Reg. No. remains to be seen.

Here are the next three in the sequence  
780717 (Jobling catalogue No. 7000)   -    780718 (catalogue No. 9000)   -    780719 (catalogue No. 8000) .    all Registered on 17th February 1933, and all extended for one additional period of five years, so expiring on 17th February 1943.                  Two images will flip over to the  next post.

Thank you, Paul.  Well done and much appreciated.
 
With your permission, I will add these to the GMB RD database in due course, and they are, of course, important source material for Jobling collectors.

by all means Fred - please feel free to add to the GMB data base  -  it's a project that I think is going to take some substantial time to complete.

Two further items  -  Nos. 787871 - 72, both first Registered on 15th November 1933 and both extended for one additional period of five years - so expiring on 15th November 1943.

Rd. 787871 (Jobling design No. 11000) - Lambton bowl in Bird pattern

Rd. 787872 (Jobling design No. 10000) - Lambton bowl in Rose pattern  -  unfortunately, a very poor photograph about which I can do really nothing to improve - perhaps if someone has this bow they might add a good picture.

In common with a few of the factory's other bowl designs, the above two patterns are described occasionally as 'lighting' items - so assume they may have been used as domestic electric light bulb shades, suspended from the ceiling rose - such ornamentation was common in the 1940 - 1950 period.

You can see the very obvious Lalique inspiration in some of these designs - especially the opalescent forms, and according to Baker & Crowe, moulds for the two designs for the large 'Lambton' bird and rose bowls were being made in France - they don't say specifically that the mould maker was M. Etienne Franckhauser, but he is known to have made plaster moulds for some of Jobling's designs.

Will someone explain please the origin of the word 'Lambton', used to describe these two designs  -  I've trawled the books but drawn a blank :)

P.S.  first hiccup - in the list there is a water set and ashtray that come immediately before these two  .  will do next, and trust not too much confusion.

yes, they're v.g. pix - thanks for posting  - assume you don't know the reason for the use of the word Lambton?
