British & Irish Glass / Re: Sowerby Registrations from 14th May 1878 - Parcel 9.
« Last post by Paul S. on December 11, 2017, 10:24:01 AM »
Fred  -  reflecting on your comments that the lid for sugar box Rd. 321369 appears not to have been Registered at the same time as the base, seems unusual perhaps, and I've looked through the seven Nos. you indicate as possibly harbouring the Reg. for the lid only - Nos. 318789 to 318795.                 Regret to say I'm unable to find a Registration for said lid within the number range you mention, but what suddenly occurred to me is the fact that these seven Nos. were allocated something like 4 months prior to Registration of the base (May of that year).            It appears rather back to front that a component such as a lid might be Registered months prior to its intended base  -  suppose you might argue that this lid served as a 'part' for more than one Registration - but we'd need proof of that suggestion, and I don't see evidence of that in the Kew drawings.

As you have pointed out, the base for this 'sugar box' appears in Sowerby pattern book XI, minus its lid  -  but it does appear in the factory drawing with the lid, which would have been the official information supplied by Sowerby to the Board of Trade.                So do we argue that the data provided to the Board of Trade on the 14th of May 1878 i.e. the whole design including lid, should be our criteria for assuming that Reg. 321369 was indeed intended to cover both lid and box?

What in particular made you suggest that the lid might occur within the seven Registrations from 20th February (parcel 3) of that year?

thanks for the additional links Anne  -  regret I can't read some of the information, but now consider the following interpretation to be accurate   .......

Reg. 543183 (this is some time in June 1909, which makes more sense than 1914) - however, the No. is not listed in the Blue Book, but hopefully will be found at Kew.              This revised date looks to tie in with comments to the effect that the final design was appeared around 1910.

the other Rd. No. reads  ..........  10690/23/1359

and the Patent No. is 15449

Oooh! This image is clearer https://rcpsg.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/10.jpg  The wording appears to be
"Patent No 15440/05" and  "Reg. No. 343183" or possibly "543183" although this listing for another one gives the numbers as
Quote
Also embossed words and numbers PATENT BRITISH 154 49/05. Also embossed words and numbers REG. NO BRITISH 543183/0910690/23/1359.

Glass / Re: Azurene style vase with DSG mark

Whilst I agree the likelihood of Dxxxx Studio Glass is very possible.  It would be inadvisable not to consider Dxxxx Sxxxxxxx Glass or even Sxxxxx Dxxxxxx Glass as possible makers.    For example  David Smallhouse is an ex Orient & Flume maker who could make this oh so easily.  An enquiry through his Facebook site might pay dividends.

Some of the Allenbury's boxes seen to have a registered design number and a patent number on them, but the images are too small and unclear to make the details out. I wonder if we can track down a better image somewhere so we can see the details?

This is the best I've found so far but the numbers still are not legible: https://nainmamme.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/wpid-wp-1436636558096.jpeg

By the way, I used to work not far from the Wellcome Museum but I never managed to visit it.

speaking I'm sure on behalf of many folk here Fred, your efforts put most of us to shame  -  very many thanks for taking the time with all of these posts.

I'm surprised at your comments that the lid for sugar box 321369 is referenced under a separate Registration No.  -  I will go now and ferret this out hopefully  -  but if I don't have said No. will include in the next Kew foray.
