Powder Bowls by Sherdley for Woolworths.
« on: April 07, 2021, 10:09:12 AM »
Powder Bowls! Supplied to Woolworths by Sherdley. I wonder if they also sold full Dressing Table Sets?

The lidded pot image in this Advert could be a Sugar or a Trinket Pot/Powder Bowl.

It has similarities to the known Ravenhead set.

https://www.glasstrinketsets.com/cms3/english/ravenhead/p286-72-p332-p334

I have a few of these what I thought to be Ravenhead pots in 2 sizes, one matches the Catalogue image the other is taller with a slightly different base pattern, the lids fit both sizes, perhaps this could be the Sherdley pot.

Is there a connection between Sherdley and Ravenhead?

With thanks to The Woolworths Museum.

Sherdley and Ravenhead are both ”United Glass Products”.

I have adverts for both with that in the small print, with some stating United Glass Bottle Manufacturers products.
 
The Sherdley adverts are 1940’s-1950’s.

There you go Jayne, from the 1963 Pottery Gazette Directory.

Now, I wonder if Kilner made trinket sets too!!!  ;D

That is brilliant LinzC thank you! I do love a Kilner Jar; home made Jam, Juicing and Jeremy Clarkson!

And now, delightedly, I've just discovered this 1940 Advert confirming Sherdley made Trinket Sets for Woolworths!  :D

Neither are the best link Jayne as they are dynamic links so return different images depending on the view setting of the album chosen by the viewer.  If you use the link below the image in the info box that ends in a - followed by a number it will always get you to the right image.

I'm adding a collage of the Sherdley Powder Bowl Woolworths Advert image, The Ravenhead 1939 Catalogue Powder Bowl image and a photo of what I believe to be both for comparison. Also some photos of what I believe to be the Sherdley 4.75 inch high Powder Bowl.
