Thanks for that Alan, my gut feeling when I bought it was old English but started to doubt myself when researching.

British & Irish Glass / Sowerby candleholder with RDnumber
« Last post by essi on Yesterday at 09:34:05 PM »
Picked this up today with two other pieces of pressed glass.
The RD number is 752847 and stands 180mm high
The thing that caught my eye was a dull sort of violet colour which I thought could be neodym glass ,it does seem to show different colours in natural light and artificial light. It shows a nice green under UV light.
Is this candleholder a common model and is colouring standard for Sowerby?
Any information gratefully received,
Tim

Hi.  I think you are correct with 'Old English'.  The canes are Arculus / Walsh Walsh canes.  Most of the minis like this that I have seen have been cut down bottle stoppers, and the very low dome and way the canes are cut into underneath one this one suggest to me that this is another example.  A nice little item though.

Picked up 2 of these glasses today . They are 85 mm high and show a nice green under UV light.
The number on the base is Rd No 277168. My blue book numbers start at 52......
Could anybody shed any information on date of design and manufacture ?.
Thank you,

I'd say that was a match to Mystery #052 as well, Fred.  I'll add the pics or you can do if you like. You should have permissions to do so?  And thank you, that looks like those three bits belong together - now to pin them to a maker!  :)

That funny little ball on the top occurs on several ringholders I have. It looks like a leftover bit from the moulding, perhaps?

Glass / Uranium Epergne Centrepiece ID help needed
« Last post by Simba on Yesterday at 05:36:16 PM »
Got this gorgeous uranium centrepiece today, the seller insisted the fish was part of the set, it does fit the hole and I know the fish is Inwald but is the centrepiece Inwald too? Found when I got home that I already had a stand that fitted.
