Glass / Re: Candlestick - Uranium Cup with Crystal Stem & Base ID Help
« Last post by Anne on Yesterday at 03:42:56 AM »
Hi Dave, I'm going to move this into the main Glass ID forum as I'm not sure if it is a part of a set or a standalone piece. Either way it will catch more eyes there than here, and if it is from a set we can move it back afterwards.

Hi Dave

Glad to be of help

Thank you, Paul.

I'm always very grateful to receive whatever you may offer, and look forward to seeing the pix in due course.

Fred  -  I do have National Archive pix of all three of these Registrations.             The first two are both design patterns for decorating the surface of glass, and as you say the third one is for a gas lamp globe.

Can post pix if you are interested, but absent tomorrow so will have to be Sunday some time. :)

Thanks Derek. If your article is available online I will read it. We have a little Pyramid weight similar to what you have shown in your composite, only ours is done with a blue core. I have seen these before, but never with a PP number attributed.

Bernard ,I don't know if you can contact  Harvey or willie from the country seat as they seem to be in retirement.
 I am sure they know a lot about this subject.
a few years ago I saw various bits of wrought iron that were thought to be made by whitefriars blacksmiths.

Hi Davek

Daveweight is correct - the photo that he refers to was actually published together with my article detailing how
I acquired the photos of the 2002 collection in the PCC newsletter issue 101 (winter 2009).

This is the composite picture showing the complete 2002 collection clearly showing the PP249 owned by Daveweight.

Best regards

Derek

A rare mould-blown clear glass decanter by Edward Moore, Tyne Flint Glass Works, South shields. The stopper is decorated in the same pattern as the decanter body.

The base bears the embossed date registry lozenge for 29 June 1861 – Parcel 4, corresponding to RD number 141642. (The lozenge is so embossed as to be correctly read from the inside of the decanter, so I attach a photo of the base with the image reversed making the lozenge easier to read).

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by ukgizmo2013).

Jenny Thompson describes the design registration as for ‘pattern’.

This particular Edward Moore RD is interesting in that it is one of only three Moore  designs registered during the registry date ‘lozenge’ period 1842-1883 - the others being RD 141573 of 27 June 1861 – Parcel 4 [ ‘pattern’], and RD 217207 of 5 March 1868 – parcel 11 [‘pressed glass globe, illustrated as a line drawing in Thompson].

I know of no other photos of this RD 141642 decanter. Does anyone have photos to show of other shapes bearing the 29 June 1861 lozenge, please?

Does anyone have photos to show Edward Moore’s ‘lozenge’ designs from RDs 141573 and/or 217207, please?

Fred.

Well i do love glass but i am not a specialist in American glass. I just thought the teal colour was very unusual and was very lucky that there was not an expert in the room. I bought all of it for under £20. Its going to take me quite a while to check it all and decide what to keep and what to sell. There are more than 30 pieces of glass and i don' t recognize all of it- i may be back later for advise!
