Three sets of glasses:

I think these ones are 'Slim Jims', but I haven't been able to find out if they're AHW or not.  I think they are, going from previous designs.  :?: If they're Ravenhead, they'll be post 1960 when three colours were introduced. (McConnell)

Boxed set Ravenhead 'Chunkies*' in Diamante pattern.  *Note the contour to the base which sets them apart from other designs.

AHW for either Ravenhead or Sherdley (20th Century Factory Glass (new Edition), Jackson.  I like to find out which factory produced them.  :D

I've got at least another couple of boxes of sets in the loft, but I can't find them.  :x   I'll post single glasses if anyone's interested later.   :wink:

David E:
I'll readily admit my shortcomings with regard to Ravenhead and Alexander Hardie Williamson (AHW) designs, so other people's input will be most welcome.

The second photo is definitely of Ravenhead Chunkies  :roll:  :lol:

However, if anyone's interested, they have a full(?) set of all AHW designs at Himley Hall — I believe Broadfield House had first dibs when they cleared AHW's house after his death :shock:

I'd really like to see that.  I really should take a trip one day.   :D

This was just an opportunity to put my other type of glass on the board, I don't know anyone else (Sue perhaps?) that has any of it.  At least I've finally got round to taking photo's now though.  :D

...and it means I don't have to trawl through the loft again - that's a good thing.  :wink:

David E:
Max, I've posted a new thread to show the photo I took of all these designs.

When time permits, I'll try and take a photo for each shelf and post them on the new thread.

Thanks for sharing these examples.

Definitely Ravenhead Slim Jims, Max. I've seen a boxed set of these but I haven't a note of if a designer's name was shown on the box or not.  :?

Edited to add: I hadn't seen David's reply above when I posted this one.  :roll:
