Strange Greener item, reg number 176239
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:24:14 PM »
Hi, I have a piece of Greener as shown.  :)
http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-4291

It has the registration number 176239. According to my book, the design was registered on the 10 of August 1891.

It measures 11cm high and 15cm diameter.

Can anyone tell me what this was used for please? Something missing perhaps?

maybe it goes the other way up, a wide base and small flute for a single flower?

Oooh, I love guessing games.  :lol:

Could it be a candle holder :roll:

Well done Carolyn, I think you get the cookies. :D

Jenny Thompson's book does give the RD as a vase in the listings, but in the text on page 12 she also says that the registration was for the the top alone (i.e. that leaf frill pattern), and that this was also found as a nightlight holder in both plain and coloured glass.

I think what you have, TC, is the nightlight holder version of the design - as Carolyn says, a candle holder. :)

Thanks very much Anne and Carolyn.  :D

I had the information infront of me, oops.  :roll:  :oops:

I guess they made other items with this design.

Unless this is classed as a vase?  :)

Yup, I think they must have, TC. That pattern could have been used on a whole range of items I suppose. We know of a vase, a bowl and a nightlight holder so far... I wonder what else there was?
