Glass / Re: Please help identify this'Greener' 'Daisy & Button' Sugar Basin
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 05:55:33 PM »
hi Nick - looks as tho you are probably correct with the Greener attribution - according to Ray Slack the lion rampant with halberd was used by their factory for about the last fifteen years of the C19.                 Lattimore shows a page from the Pottery Gazette for April 1887 which shows a variety of designs which were produced for the Golden Jubilee - almost all of which have this daisy and hobnail pattern.
Regret I'm not familiar with your particular sugar, and in the absence of a Rd. No. we may be able to pin down a date accurately, but certainly Greener did produce sugars (like just about everyone else)  -  have looked in the books but unable to see this particular design - perhaps Fred will have more information.

Believe Edward Bolton also produced the same design  -  although their pieces obviously wouldn't have had the Greener trade mark.

Have you tried the Board's Glass Gallery -  Fred's compilation of pressed designs with known makers?

Glass / Please help identify this'Greener' 'Daisy & Button' Sugar Basin
« Last post by nick.a on Yesterday at 05:30:13 PM »
Hi,
I have very limited information on Henry Greener, but I believe that this 'daisy & button'/ 'daisy & hobnail' sugar basin has their 'lion & halberd' trademark imprinted on the base. I would appreciate any opinions/information on pattern/registration and date of manufacture.
Kind regards
Nick

It certainly looks like a nice bit of reasonably early studio glass.
I'm very curious about it, studio glass being my "thing".

I want to be able to id this one.  ;D

Glass / Please confirm that this is a Sowerby sweetmeat pattern 968.

Hi,
I believe that this may be a Sowerby sweetmeat dish pattern #968 from page 44 of the 1885 catalogue and I'm hoping that Paul, Fred or another English glass expert can confirm this. If you see this Fred, please feel free to use the photos if needed, and accept my thanks for the excellent work on the new Davidson photo database, it's very much appreciated.
Kind regards
Nick

My goblet is signed George Elliot Bewdley 1973 August England; and has an anchor mark.
The writing is very small and neat - I did have to go and get a better pair of glasses to read "August". His signature can vary. I have seen other bits where the writing is bigger than it is on my goblet.

I really just want to be able to see what is written on the base, a lot better.  ;D

Nicely done. The initials look to me to be PB, arranged in a signature monogram.

hi, could you also please wipe a little talcum powder or cornflour over the signature, wipe the excess off with your thumb, and retake the photo?
The talc brings the mark out.
Looking at the goblet, I was wondering if it might be George Elliot, but I can't see the signature well enough to work out if that's what it might say.  :)

This isn't "vaseline" glass. "Vaseline" glass is an american term which tends to cover most Uranium glass, although strictly speaking, it should be a mixture of both opalescent and uranium glass - like the Davidson Pearline.
Opalescent glass has a "fire" inside it when held up to the light - like Lalique stuff. It's not just another term for milky glass, which would be opaline.

I think your goblet has coloured enamels - in an opaline and a yellow as well as others, and from the look of the base, it probably has some silver salts in it, which would be doing all sorts of different coloured effects, hazy blues, yellows, ochres and possibly silvery blue deposits on the outside.

A sheet of plain A4 paper is fine for a background.
