bowl shapes with Stratford Rings.
« on: February 02, 2013, 05:30:53 PM »
thought it might be of interest to ask if anyone is aware of any further bowl shapes in addition to these - there may well be some cut glass examples perhaps.        As is usual with Stuart, there is a lack of images in the books, so always some uncertainty as to the full range of shapes that were produced in this Stratford Rings pattern. :)

I have one of the top pic right-hand side bowls and the 2nd pic bowls - both in green. I also have a smaller version of the top right one in the blue and a slightly wider small version (finger bowl) with ice plate in amber, Paul.

Plus my 3 footed grapefruits have the Stratford rings too - see next post for pics of them.

thanks Anne  -  I get the impression there's less of an interest in these Stuart bowls than perhaps a year or two back - I seem to remember there were more collectors of Stuart then.
I posted these after I found the larger of my two blue bowls only a week or so ago, and realized I'd not seen that shape before  -  although I do have grapefruits.
Is your grapefruit an example of enamel painting, or is it a transfer decorated piece??         I did have a large clear bowl, which oddly seems less common than coloured examples - and it had enamel decoration - but 80% had disappeared, so I gave it away.
As practical pieces I think they're quality material, and underrated. :)

It's hand-painted Paul, and I have three of them all the same - the edges which are a bit muddy coloured (dunno why!) are actually green also.  I told you this Finepix of himself's wasn't very good with glass, didn't I? :)

sorry to hear you have problems with the Finepix camera Anne.           Don't know whether you edit your pix with Picasa (the first one looks as though it might have been) - but I find it improves the contrast and gives the images much more life.         Don't know what I shall do if my Finepix gives up the ghost  -  for a non-technical person like me it's worth its weight in gold.
Are you sure you have your camera on the correct setting?

Complete fruit set with enamelled decoration, acid etched Stuart mark (but no RD number).

A large fruit bowl with similar enamelled decoration, simply marked with Rd. 681309 (registered 22 February 1921).

A pair of golden amber stemmed glasses with enamelled fruit decoration, this time marked with Rd. 681651 (registered 12 March 1921).
