Quote from: "mrvaselineglass"
... I also have a photo around somewhere of a ram's head piano insulator.  The person that bought it on ebay donated it to the Broadfield House museum.  I *think* it is also a Derbyshire.  I was not aware of the old rugged cross.  I will have to keep my eyes peeled for that one. ...

Dave — I've not seen the ram's head version.

I had a pleasant moment sorting for Woking last week.   I managed to unite two epergne blocks which have been unsuccessfully trying to get together for about four years, always ending up in different oddments boxes.   One is a standard 6+1 ribbed, or, more correctly, gadrooned, the other a 3+1 registered design with leaf and berry (cherry?) relief decoration and a difficult registration lozenge.   Both are the same fitting with locking slots.   I've only ever seen one coloured block, in green to match the three leaf sprays.

More when I get them photographed and F T P working.

Hello:

With regards to the rim under the base, Baccarat also made covered dishes where the top appears to be the same design as a Press Papier (paperweight) listed elsewhere in the catalog.  I think that the lids likely had a rim to keep them from sliding off.  I have a memory that these cats and dogs were used as lids but again I can't access my files right now.

Have a look at the two catalog cuts for the cats on the first page of the PK article referenced earlier.  It appears that the 1885 version has a rim under the base.  There is also an A appended to the item number which may imply something or nothing.  The catalog cut of the dog from 1885 may show a rim but it is hard to tell from these scans.

I also noticed from the original catalog illustrations that the two dogs shown were slightly different in height (though I could not read the height listing).  However, the catalog illustration of the dog on the left shows a different length of front leg and that one seems to match closer to the one I have than the later version.  From this, I am making the assumption that my doggie was made in the 1870 time period.  Again, I am greatful for Sid's  long memory, as this could easily have gone a long time as a mystery to me!

I'm resurrecting this post because I did not fully understand it. eg. Sockle. and today I bought the uranium glass cat. It is damaged but I remembered this thread so I bought it in the hope to find out if it is old or a copy and again how to tell. It has chipped ears and a large chip out of the bottom which can be seen on the back. 4.75" tall, hollow and three piece mould. Funnily enough the lady said she had the dog but broke it and threw it away! Mrvaseline glass and I have a pair between us.

Pat
thanks so much for showing us the kitty! (glad it got rescued)  May I borrow a couple of your photos?  I am going to do a short "ID" article for our glass club newsletter on the dog, and now that there is a Kitty photo example too, it would be good to include it.

Of course you may use the photos. But is mine the same as yours or is it a copy. Do you know?

Yours is a cat.  Mine is a dog!  Yours appears to be the original and I don't think that the reproduction was made in vaseline/uranium glass.
