You clearly don't live with somebody who has IBS.

Thanks Christine!  Is it just the box made in China?

I always thought a pong was a 'pen and ink' ;)

 ;) Better than a pong.

seeing that lower of the two sets (very attractive by the way), made me suddenly realize that most sets I see are without an atomiser.    Did this happen suddenly or is it possibly just that U.K. trinket sets had dropped them?

British & Irish Glass / Re: Hailwood & Ackroyd Registrations

many thanks Nigel for your interesting contribution  -  perhaps like so many pieces of 'older' domestic wares, a lot of these shades were binned in the late middle C20 when domestic design was changing to minimalist/Scandinavian and exposed light bulbs etc.   .........    it hurts to think of how much desirable glass and ceramics that must have gone into the dustbin at that time.              Have a feeling that the designs I've shown are probably now scarce, but you never know, this thread might jog a memory or two and we might yet see some more H. & A. designs in the flesh.

Wasn't aware of your recent and very close bereavement  -  my condolences and sympathies and trust you manage to sort out matters before too long.  :)

Scandinavian Glass / Hadeland Glass Made in China?
« Last post by cxgirl on July 28, 2016, 06:05:40 PM »
Hi,
I was surprised when I saw the Made in China label on the box of these 2 glass pieces - they both have Hadeland Norway on the bases.
Are these really Hadeland?
They are small, 2" & 3" in height.
Thanks for any information.

Very little is known about Hailwood & Ackroyd, or its preceding company Ackroyd & Best.

When I did this work a couple of years back hoping to find some art glass representations, all I came up with was lamp shades or panels, such as found in BGBtW 'The Charioteers'.

Most adverts suggest that the shades were either opaque (White or Ivory), or patterned. My observations suggest that the patterns were often black transfers and either hand painted or sprayed.

There are often hand painted codes, but as yet I haven't been able to record enough of them to break that code - although on some occasions they do appear to have a date. As yet none seem to be consistent!

My initial interest was through the art glass that appears from time to time with an acid etched mark. Apropos that, Manley says that it is only worth collecting pieces if they are marked. I say, you wouldn't know they were Hailware unless their marked.

Even though I have met a part of the Hailwood family and photographed their collection of glass unless they were marked I wasn't prepared to believe an item was by the company. Indeed there was a piece of Pyrex that was pulled out of the cupboard that was initially thought to be by Hailware! Difficult to point that sort of thing out I have to tell you.

Because of the lack of catalogues (I have one which yet again deals with lighting) the representations help with dating, but still only keep us in the world of lighting, whether commercial, or domestic. They also produced their own metal ware for the light fittings.

I have kept my research quiet since so little comes along through the internet and visiting various source materials is both time consuming and expensive (if you travel to Leeds and want to stay to go through the small amount of material in the archives, etc., then overnighting is a must.).

So far advertising locally has borne very little other than what should be regarded as hearsay, although the appeal through my website has over the years. The 'good' thing about hearsay of course is that you can follow that thread to see where it might lead ;)

Cheers, Nigel

PS. Sadly I have been unable to do any research this year since my Mum passed away, and am unlikely to until her estate is sorted out, however any imformation would be gratefully received and filed for future use. [Credits always given/made]. Nigel
