Hi Glen,

I managed to miss this while the site was down! Congratulations, fantastic find.

As Christine suggests, the Palm Tree pattern definitely appears here in Australia in the Crown catalogues. I've seen them in the standard uranium lettuce green, amber and clear. There are four or five pieces in my collection, but only three are easy to get to. Would you like pictures? I think they're slightly different patterns, but would love your opinion.

Cathy - the Golden Carp also appears in Crown Crystal catalogues. And yes please, I would love photos.

BTW, I "heard" of someone who has a Melon Rib vase with a coronet label. Have you got / seen the photo? I have tried to get hold of one, but nothing is forthcoming.

Thanks

Glen

Yes, but it's a much less obvious resemblance: I'm pretty sure there are no waves in the Crown version and the fish is smaller... (and having said that with such confidence I must check to make sure- I haven't seen one go past on eBay for a while and haven't got one myself).

Gosh, they were so naughty!! With their rampant copying, and with the head WJ 'Gunboat' Smith bullying the government to raise tariffs when it looked like overseas glass might be cheaper, no wonder they had a stranglehold over the market here.

I heard about that Coronet sticker as well, but haven't seen one. Eo you know anything about Coronet? Mostly when the melon ribs appear with stickers here, they have either a Waverley sticker (which Crown stuck on many of their jug and tumbler sets) or Suprima.

Cheers,
Cathy

Coronet was used on some Czech glass (but who?) - and it also is part of the Hortensja logo. The thot plickens.

To digress slightly from carnival, are we saying that the green uranium palm trees found here in the UK are Hortensja or Crown Crystal or either

I suppose the jury is still out - but I suspect Hortensja. What do you think, Cathy?

I have just realised what Cathy meant when she agreed with me :shock:  I only meant the palm tree was pictured upside down :oops:  and that it had taken me a few seconds to work out that it was the same. Must have been one of those psychic moments

Great article Glen 8)  A really fascinating read as always :)
I think my favourite piece is the Rising Comet vase.
