1928 Army and Navy Catalogue - Glass Section
« on: January 14, 2022, 06:49:24 PM »
Hi folks,

I recently bought a bashed up version of the 1928-9 Army & Navy Stores catalogue. If you have seen the 1907 catalogue, which was published as a book, you will know how useful these can be for filling in gaps in missing pattern books, or for working out when lines were offered or withdrawn.

The numbers given with each item are usually the factory pattern number, so if you know the range from another document, it should in theory be possible to separate out those from various manufacturers in these catalogues. (note all are prefixed "C.G." for China and Glass section)

In that spirit I am starting a thread to go through the glass section of this catalogue, to see if anyone can spot the patterns and work out the manufacturer. I suspect they will nearly all turn out to be Midlands firms. These images are all from my personal copy. There are 14 pages to go through which I will split in halves so we get a decent look at the images given file size restrictions.

If there is sufficient interest I will start up another thread for glass items outside the glass section in the same catalogue, which includes a couple of Whitefriars items.

Looking forward to any contributions...

Very good Neil, some look similar to the Webb and Corbett pieces shown here.

On the third page, middle top no. 22887 is a Stuart Stratford vase. The number matches. See http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,32831.msg177779.html

That's a good start... there are quite a few items numbered in the 22000's 23000's... maybe they are all Stuart

Showing the front and back of the glass section next, before we chew on the rest of the middle. The front page is all pyrex which may show its importance at this time. The last page includes some tumbler patterns which date back to the 1850s, maybe earlier.

Well, we live and learn, but have to say I've never heard of an 'eared dish' or a 'ramikin'  -  also have a PYREX oval casserole which sits inside a chromed casing with ball feet.     Will have a look at some of these in the coming days.       
Some time last year ? we did a tumbler thread - always possible some of those might match with the page just added here.

On to decanters - there are named sets here which somebody must surely know of... "Montrose", "Bute", "Albany", "Victoria", Warwick"

Paul, ramikins or ramekins were all the rage when creme brulee was the dessert of choice  ;D

The last of the decanter pages, and a page of fruit bowls
