Henry Greener Basket Rd. 95935
« on: November 25, 2021, 03:23:53 PM »
This has the Rd. No. 95935 registered 16/3/1888. It's quite large with a maximum diameter of 21cm. and a height of 19cm., weight is spot on 1kg. Jenny Thompson's book has a partial illustration of the pattern which in full is quite complicated and not at all symmetrical. This one has a faint mauve colouring from exposure to sunlight.

how confusing - have to say I'd never realized that the complete pattern - on the glass - was mainly very different to that shown in the original factory drawing - see attached picture.       Sun purpling due to u.v. (presumably) acting on the manganese.         Hope you don't mind me adding that bit ;D

Yes Paul, it seems to comprise of 8/10 different patterns ??? Under UV it has a quite strong green manganese glow.

There is a basket on Ebay with just the pattern shown in the factory drawing, for 13 under Henry Greener glass . The seller gives the Rd. 96775, 28/3/1888.

Jenny Thompson - p. 13 - shows a glass plate the pattern of which carries not only the pattern of the factory drawing of Rd. 95935, but a lot of other unrelated design too as seen on Nev's basket (plus massive Greek Key), and against which she shows Rd. 98551. 
Also on p. 13, Thompson shows the 'segment' of pattern 95935, which obviously the lady copied direct from the factory drawing.
Finally, Thompson shows a 'twig' handle identical to the handle on Nev's basket, against which she includes the No. 96775.

Thompson ends the page by writing ...................  "The three Registered Numbers  -  95935, 96775 and 98551 - may appear on those baskets which have this design".    The Nos. in italics are my doing.

98551 is also discussed in this old topic - which shows my footed bowl with this number on it http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,4074.0.html
