sorry to dig this one up again  ..............     unexciting I know, but another jelly/blancmange related directly to the Wm. A. Bailey Registration No. 547034 posted by Fred, in reply No. 8, back on 21st May 2014.     I doubt that this particular mould was pressed as far back as 1909, and unlike Fred's more shallow and oval shape, this one is taller and circular.
Fred's example carried the factory pattern No. 7317, and this one appears to be 7323 - probably just two out of a substantial series of pattern Nos., which may have covered the company's entire range of kitchenalia items - and since this one is a slightly later No. then perhaps a design made subsequent to 7317.               Will and try to find the original drawing for this Reg. when next at Kew.

Looks good Keith, think I have seen another crackled example, same colour with a label.

Found on the Pacific coast means that it will not be European, it could be Japanese they used a huge variety of shapes.

The wings on this one sagged a bit so it has a bit of a flatter bottom.

That is a stunning example......... I would have found it impossible to resist.

Thanks for sharing.

Anyone any info?  :-X

I added to my last post while you were posting yours m. There are 'strands' of purple in the blue and around the shoulders distinct cobalt tones but I think they also silver chloride related. I have noticed purple tones inside both the the inside out vase and tricorn bottle in that photo too.
