Judging by Nigel's comments, to me in your link   ....   "a number of other manufacturers made these, including from the Continent" - then there does seem to be a difficulty with a positive attribution, unless a match can be made with a Nazeing catalogue item.

Looking at the 1930s Nazeing designs, from their catalogue of that decade   ............   ref. Nos. H1 to H7, this one doesn't appear to be a match for any of those, although one of the factory colours was something called 'Natural Mulberry, which is possibly what your colour least that's what I remember the colour of Mulberry fruit to look like.         According to Geoffrey Timberlake's book, the post war availability of colours for Nazeing's lanterns did NOT include Mulberry -  the only colours offered were crystal, peach and golden amber.
Apparently in the second period, shapes were changed but the names of the designs, in many cases, remained the same.

My opinion is that this could be anywhere from mid 1930s to late 1950s, but is probably not a Nazeing design  -  BUT, as you can see from my toing and froing in 2012, it's not always that cut and dried. :)

No... did the BH and then the Red House Cone then had to shoot back.  Really had to race around at breakneck speed to see everything and make it back in time for school pick-up.  I really wish we didn't live so far away.

There's a lot of stuff in the archives , mainly pictures, photographs etc... but little information as to who made what and when, it's taken me 4 years to get approximate dates on Royal Brierley Studio ware production !  ::) ;D ;D

Your pics need to be bigger please. The board automatically generates the small thumbnails, so your images need to be around 700px along their longest edge and compressed a bit to fit our file size limit. If you need help getting them the right size just ask!
I don't know if I've added this but here is a photo of a known Stuart design on a vase shape that is the same as 'Barbe's daughter'

'Barbe's daughter' for comparison;topic=55750.0;attach=148636;image

Hi Paul,
Thanks for your reply- funny you should mention Nazeing but I'm sure I had ( can't find it now- could have taken it back to the charity shop ) one of their Tricorn Bowls in a similar sort of colour.

It might well have started off as a lantern and converted later;yes I can see that.

The only Nazeing lantern I've been able to find online is yours ( GMB search )  :),45834.msg256556.html#msg256556


British & Irish Glass / Re: Whitefriars? really?

Apparently yet another 'William Powell Whitefriars' vase:

I also believe this is Stuart?

The shape can be seen on a vase in the Harrods 1909 catalogue with 'The New "Emeraldene" decoration'.  Unfortunately I can't read the pattern number on that one in the catalogue but it's a Stuart number I believe and of course mathces the vase in the Red House Cone in that decor.

Sorry about all this, but just trying to 'debunk' the myths.

I believe the decor is what Harrods sold as 'The "English Jewel" decoration' and the body shape is very similar to what I think would be pattern number 15637 and the rim is the same as my one therefore similar to pattern number 15635.
I don't know if yours will have had it's own pattern number but probably and possibly falling within the 15000's because of the rim shape..
