No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Thank you very much Neil.
The current view is we think these small cats and dogs were made by an unidentified factory in the northeast. The Thomas Kidd ones are thought to be the ones which come on a proper plinth. It is of course guesswork as they do not appear in any catalogues.
Thank you very much.  :)
I've cross referenced onto that thread so hopefully Neil will see this and perhaps be able to help you more.

just cross referencing this turquoise version for future searches:,69985.msg389802.html#msg389802

Looks to have been attributed to Thomas Kidd here too.
Thanks very much for your help, gives me a great lead, though Iíve read itís uncatalogued.
This one says it's by Thomas Kidd - different colour but is the dog the same?

and apparently this turquoise QV bust was produced by Thomas Kidd - same colour?
Hi, thanks for your reply   :)
That's the only other one I found and Worthpoint sometimes just throw names into the mix.  It is the same.  I might ask the Thistlewoods as they are bang on for Sowerby. Though I couldn't find any evidence on a surface look, it may be in a Catalogue somewhere.  :)
I have found another vase using a similar technique.

The description given is "Obsidian black glass vase with abstract design by Etling c1930. Footed spherical body with funnel neck. Acid etched abstract geometric design around the body providing an attractive matt charcoal-grey contrast to the black glass. Ground pontil mark and etched mark "Etling France" to base. The vase measures 30.5 cm in height."

I have not yet had a chance to research this vase. I shall check the museum library this week. In the meantime I will ask permission to use a couple of pictures on the Etling web site
