Glass / Re: Possible Richardson 'coin dot' bowl ?

quote   ....."rookie Mistake"  ...            believe you me I still make the same mistake having been years collecting.         This morning I found a late C18 early C19 drinking glass with folded foot for 6, which could probably have got for a fiver.             As I had a couple of the same design I thought I go back later.........   and of course it had gone.  :'(                  But wellies!!!!    has it actually been raining somewhere in the U.K.? ;D

quote  ...........   "It's either 1349 or 1549, difficult to read the text on in the catalogue online and my catalogue is missing the number."

I'd assumed from this that Chris was confirming he'd actually found an image of this shape in the catalogue  -  but I take it that's not the case.

Chris, does this piece have Sowerby's Trade Mark of the peacock's head, and do we know if other pieces from around the time this one is alleged to have been made, all have trade marks, or is the appearance of that little head rather hit and miss?

I'd agree unlikely to be a biscuit jar  -  think you'd probably only get a single rich tea in there.               Weren't Garibaldi a tad on the soft side  -  seem to remember they contained squashed currants or sultanas - small and soft can be appealing, sometimes ;)

James Maskrey sounds plausible, but I'd like to be sure.

Here is a close-up of the signature.

Glass / Re: Large Green Uranium Bowl - Help with Possible Maker?

Thanks Pamela. Do you have a photo of yours? Is it uranium as well or opalescent? I am awaiting delivery of a large trinket pot with a bakelite and chrome handle in the same colour and pattern as my bowl - I looked through the VLG catalogues on Pressglas Korrespondenz.de but couldn't find either there. Google searching is no help either.
Are Lausitz and Stolzle the same maker?
many thanks

I bought mine in Berlin. The seller convincingly assured that origin of this bowl is Lausitz (VLG)   :D

A few ideas but nothing concrete. The pattern also turns up in opalescent so that might narrow it down a bit. It seems the general belief is that they are French but I have never seen a marked one to confirm. They're often seen as a set with a large bowl and up to six smaller ones.

Give it time please, not everyone checks the board everyday, plus it's a holiday weekend here in the UK at least, so folks may not be around much.

Page 6 of the 1882 catalogue is spills, vases and baskets. Not a mention of biscuit jars anywhere. If this is only "4 inches in height, 2 1/4 inches across the rim and 1 7/8th inches across the base." as per OP then it's most like a spill or a small vase, surely?  Too small for biscuits, plus with no lid they'd go soft. Not into small soft biscuits myself! ;)
