No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

good afternoon Steven  -  being east of just about most of us, then you are already in your Friday afternoon  -   have to say I didn't realize that all of China was on a standard GMT plus 8 hours, although this must make things easier than having several time zones. :)

You're not too late, and I'll do my very best for you.             I do already have some of the Kew pictures of Jobling Registrations, but apparently neither of these two, unfortunately.           Always possible that Rd. 795461 never went into general production, but the fact that there were two Nos. issued does indicate more than one design.

Hi Paul,

Not sure if it's too late (I'm posting from China and always muddle up the time difference), but I'd be very grateful if you could take a look at 795461 and 795462. These were both registrations for the Jobling 11700 2-handled celery vase but I've never seen an example of the former.,33067

Thanks :)

Kevin, I didn't receive a mail from you.

David, for confirmation, my emails were only sent to m.
thank you  ;D ;D ;D

Hang on a minute. I see comet-like trails of silver deposit around it, on the surface. Michael Harris could do that, and very early on at IoWSG, he was about the only person who could attempt anything large.
It could well be his work after all.
At Mdina, Vicente Boffo and Joseph Said (eventually) managed to produce comet-like trails, but there wasn't anybody else, as far as I know, at IoWSG who could.
Hi and thanks for the replies and photo, much appreciated 😀 In the photo shown by glassobsessed, the goblet on the left of the pair looks to me like it's virtually the same types of glass combination, decor and style, but this chalice is just different proportions and size (with you both suggesting Chalice as a possibility, then I'm going with that  ;D )
I'm tempted to take it to the glass fair next month as there were 2 IOW stands there last time? 😀
Thanks for your help again
You can't send attachments via the internal email system. It is intended to be a means to make contact with a member which can then be continued directly by personal email. If you get an email from someone via the board and click reply please check where that reply is going to - if it has an address at then you need to change it to the address of the person contacting you, as replies cannot be sent via the board's system or a address. This is an anti-spam measure.

I'm intending to be at Kew tomorrow morning, and so far have a couple of GMB Rd. Nos. to photograph  -  if anyone has a last minute request for any images for Reg. Nos., let me know before 9.00 a.m. tomorrow please. :)
Hi David

I'm really sorry I  haven't received any message from you at all.  I hope you didn't think I was ignoring you  :-[ and no, still nothing has come through.
I sent one message to you via the envelope saying 'That's very generous ...' but didn't hear anything back on email at all.  The only posts I've seen have been those on this thread.

Sorry for causing hassle, but perhaps there is something wrong with the envelope system for you sending things by reply?

Strong possibility, could be a bowl or a pot missing a lid, see the lower shelf in this photo:
