Your handled dish is shown in the 1887 advertisement as the Shell Sweet in the No. 2007 pattern.

the answer, I think, must be that Margaret was making an assumption  ............    the only Greener & Co. Registration during the first nine months of 1887 was 71736  -  there isn't another until mid September that year.

Quite logical really, and I suspect correct...........   top of the class Margaret.

will do Nick.       
It's late in the evening and I may be missing vital clues here, but am wondering how Margaret knew that Greener & Co. pattern 2006 corresponded with Rd. 71736 - if you read Fred's link there isn't an explanation from Margaret for the source of this information.           Presumably somewhere Margaret found a cross reference linking pattern 2006 with Rd. 71736  -  will someone kindly tell me the location :)

Is the Greener ad. for 'New Designs',  that Sid refers to, the same as the Pottery Gaz. ad that is mentioned elsewhere in this thread  -  if not then might the Rd. No. appear in the ad. that Sid refers to?

If Margaret is correct, then no doubt the Kew image will show only a salt - as this will have been the shape on which this design was Registered.
But that should be adequate for our purposes.

or am I missing the point entirely ;D

Thank you, Nick, for your kind permission.

Hi Paul,
Is it possible you could put it on your list for when you next visit Kew?
Kind regards

British & Irish Glass / Re: Sowerby Sea Green Opal Glass Creamer
« Last post by mhgcgolfclub on Yesterday at 08:59:49 PM »
Hi Fred

The pictures do make the creamer look a bit more turquoise than it really is because I had to use the camera flash. But the opalescent is as you say quite pronounced around the base, handle and rim.

I had not really got around to checking the pattern , I think you would do a better job than me on that . I had only tried to check for any of the Sowerby carnival glass jugs but no luck.

The creamer does not fluoresce at all under a UV light.

Glass / White and red cotton twist ruby goblet help please.
« Last post by brucebanner on Yesterday at 08:56:19 PM »
Weird looking piece of glass i'm guessing a goblet, a lot of wear on the base and the base has no pontil completely flat and smooth, the matt finish to the outer glass looks hand finished and not acid treated as tool marks can be seen and the surface is uneven.

7 1/4 inches in height, 3 1/2 inches across the base and 3 3/8th inches across the widest point of the rim.

Any thought's welcome regards Chris.
