Looks as if its of (take your pick) relatively recent Czech, Polish or Romanian decent.

having looked thru the Kew register for October 1851, it does appear that Fred is correct in suggesting that there is just the one Registration that month for Barens Blumberg, which is a p/w  -  and looks to be a paper backed example, showing a coloured picture of The Crystal Palace.         This was allocated Rd. No. 81217 and is 31st October, as mentioned by Fred.            Let me know if anyone wants to see this image.
I could be very wrong, but this sardine dish looks untypical of other pressed items from the earlier part of the first period.

During the first lozenge period, the day date  -  unlike the year and month  -  is not coded in the form of a letter or number  -  so you'd imagine quite straight forward to read from the diamond, unless of course worn or poorly stamped etc.

Roy - are you able to post a clear picture of the lozenge?

Lots of companies make icepick flowers and this doesn't strike me as particularly "Indian" colours

Hi Christine,
This is the first version of this type of weight I have seen with a handle, or knob, the other types I have seen have been standard round types or domed. I am 100% sure they have been making these for years

The standard Indian icepick flowers (i.e., no handle) I've see have matte bases and lesser quality clear glass. Are you talking specifically handled ones Dave?

Hi Chris,
These weights always seem to have three "flowers" in them and I am guessing they are around 1970's. Sorry I cannot remember what the base was like on those I saw but I have seen round and domed weights with this design in them.
It will be interesting to see if anyone agrees or disagrees with what I have said so I will keep an eye on this post

Thanks Dave, were the bases concave and highly polished and what sort of age were they ?

A stunning couple of pieces by the same maker in green cut to clear crystal with saw tooth top rims. The bowl measures 27 cm across at its widest and the vase 23 cm tall. The bowl has a highly decorated cut base and the vase base has a star cut. No visible makers marks.

I'm going back to neo-wotsit. At least I do know what that is!
