Glass / Georgian, Victorian punch cup or something else?.
« Last post by brucebanner on Yesterday at 03:06:06 PM »
Any thoughts on this one, just about hanging together with four internal cracks, i think might be Georgian but can not find anything similar.

5 1/2 inches in height, 4 inches across the rimand 3 1/4 inches across the base.

Regards Chris.

For permanent reference, here are pictures of the Molineaux Webb #699 glass piano foot referred to by Neil in the link in the previous post.

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

BTW, Neil, I have  long-standing open permission from Kevin which also allows you to use any of these images on your Manchester Glass website.

British & Irish Glass / Percival Vickers Reg. 357730.

Another piano foot from Percival Vickers - Registered on 5th November 1880 - again I've searched the Board's archives and not aware we've previously had this design.

If you look at Neil's factory pattern sheet here (as attachment)   .....     I'd imagine this one may well correspond to either PV pattern No. 11 or 14 possibly, but there seems to be some difference in the design which confusing since both were no doubt created by the factory.
Perhaps Neil will give us the benefit of his opinion on this design. :)

Thanks for all your replies, had a look at Franz Austen but again seems like most pieces are signed, also most pieces appear to be the same colour throughout whereas this piece has a milky white interior. I've looked into Okra further but again see no pieces with a coloured interior, stumped. :(

I have frankensteined all the known PV piano feet into the same image. The top two rows were in the 1881 catalogue, the bottom 2 rows appeared in the 1893 supplementary catalogue and again in the 1911 supplementary catalogue. I suspect all were still in production at the time the company folded.

And nope, I don't know what happened to number 7

Compare to the Molineaux Webb piano feet at the time their catalogue was issued, circa 1870. The earliest one, 699 is on eBay at the moment, for an ambitious price

I'm not totally sure but I think that this vase/bowl may be Lindshammar.

That one is in the 1881 pressed catalogue as well. They also registered a piano foot number 357730 on 5 Nov 1880 and not forgetting the 1859 registration for Thomas Dawkins of Clerkenwell - associated with PV, the latter two known to be in yellow, presumably uranium.
