Yes that's the right ID, Paul. I have one of these stowed away in a box somewhere which I promised to Pamela ages ago and which I've not managed to run to earth since. I know it is here somewhere but just where is anyone's guess! Once we finally get everything sorted out I will be able to bring the boxes out of storage and unpack them all and see what there is. (And then panic about where I'm going to put it all!!!) :)

Incidentally, mine does not have the CELERY mark.

Just for reference, I have several of the royal commemorate pressed glass plates (some Greener, others unknown maker) and a butter dish (Davidson) and none of them have a maker's mark or a registration number on them. (Four of the plates and the butter dish are in this shot, along with the rest of my Royal glass, pottery and ephemera stuff, on display at the 2012 Jubilee exhibition in the village where I live.)
It's in the pre '57 Rudolfova Hütte catalogue, page 44, model 11660.
Dear Paul, Sue, Anne and Chris,

thank you for the feedback.  :)

No lozenge or reg number. Wear is period and in great condition. I haven't seen one before.

I scoured Jenny Thompson for the period too and only Greener appeared to be registering at the time and the dot matrix finish appears similar.

"Flat 8's ". Fantastic detail. I doff my cap.

So Davidson. Cool.

Herewith great plumes.

Kind regards

I don't know about Jacobite stuff.
Is that when the English decided they'd like James the 6th to rule them too? That was after some Albert burning some scones.
That's all I know about kings and their numbers, apart from 'enery the 8th. There was a song about that. He was the 8th husband called 'enery some woman had had.  ;)

This fruit bowl is not only an unusual shape to see, it's pink! I've not seen any pink "bobbly/stippled" commemorative glass before.
bottle made late 1700s?    :-\
or was it ? :-[  Never seen one that early.

Actually an interesting comment - but what about the sucking out of air, that appears to be what Pellatt wrote.
It's a bit strange but perhaps they were trying to communicate that it wasn't hollow. And perhaps that was the only way they could communicate about the glass being in liquid state when it was being worked, or something?

nice to hear from you dear Susan - I suspect that as a Scot you're still smarting over the Jacobite issue :P

my comments weren't intended to be serious - just a little teasing and a polite and humorous way of drawing attention to the need for amendment.

I'd still be interested to hear from Andrew as to whether there is a trade mark on these Silver Wedding pieces, or none at all, ever.
hello Hugo

you may be correct with your suggestion, but I've looked in various catalogues and so far unable to confirm this is Inwald.            It's possible that someone else might have more information - or perhaps Pamela.

Most of these slim vases have flared rims, but even so yours is generally typical overall of similar pieces from the 1930 - 40 period.
