 :-[ Doh.
My excuse is I was looking at the glass and thinking about that. I'd read the text, but I have short-term memory problems, and the info. had vanished.  ::)

and the final Registrations from this group  .......  307696.

As usual, sincere thanks to the Trustees and Directors of the National Archives, at Kew, for their continued help and permission in allowing us to use these Board of Trade Registration details.

When we discussed this group of Sowerby Registrations in 2013, I moaned then about not having a picture of 307686 to show, and sad to say that for whatever reason it appears I didn't rectify that situation  -  I think Fred has commented that this particular Rd. is a wall pocket.

So, with this first one in the group still missing  -  which I'm now unable to put right until next week  -  and 307691 added yesterday, we're left with Nos. 307687 to 90, and 307692 to 96 - a total of nine Registrations from 13th February 1877, and pix of these are now attached  -  spread over three separate posts.

I hope I'm not mixing things up now, because I find it all a bit complicated, and forgive me if I make a mistake because this is just from what I remember, I haven't got any literature here with me ...  glassdesigners/manufacterers who got affected by the war, productions interrupted and moved elsewhere later on etc... headspinning stuff ... from what I understood, correct me if I'm wrong, is that Etling's pieces were produced at Sèvres, absorbed by C-l-R, who had the rights to the name and kept using the trademark. Etling never came back from the war and he had no relatives left to claim anything, as they were all deported. All his moulds were kept over there at Sèvres/ C-l-R, and I don't know how the law worked at that time, but if something wasn't claimed after so many years, I guess you could consider it as yours, which legally  still applies today. However, brands were perhaps already protected at that time, i'm not sure when copyright was introduced in Europe, but obviously they couldn't carry on the brand name, and i guess that's why you can find signed pieces and unsigned ones, The only way to make sure what it is, is to find a signed piece and that would confirm the whole theory, but I haven't come across one yet...

Ran into this while looking for something else, Rindskopf, 1915 catalogue, item 2036/4 looks about right: http://www.glas-musterbuch.de/Rindskopf-1915.8+B6YmFja1BJRD04JnByb2R1Y3RJRD0zNzYmcGlkX3Byb2R1Y3Q9OCZkZXRhaWw9.0.html

Welcome to the board. I believe your bowl to be modern mosaic glass made for the home decor market, possibly in China.

Murano & Italy Glass / Re: Cenedese 'Scavo' Style Bottle

Thanks for looking Ivo.  I will get better photos today and see upload them to the bucket without reducing.  Would Murano glass be inscribed Cenedese if it wasn't (if it was not a fake that is)?
