Walsh only has a sharp pontil mark on a domed foot. The blue also looks too dark for Pompeian

according to Andy McConnell's book  'The Decanter' (page 183) he says.............""Recognised as a separate trade in 1777, pinchers specialised in small, cut-price parts, including stoppers, drops and lemon-squeezers for rummers, candelabra, salts etc., which were sold to differing glasshouses""

As far as stoppers go, I get the impression that mushrooms and target/bull's eyes were the most commonly pinched shapes.

The factory appear to have Registered six items on that particular day  -  Rd. Nos. 352840 - 45  -  I'll have a look in the archives and see which one this is.

Edited to add........     appears to be Rd. 352842 as per attached picture.

great find Angela - I think we should join you ;)

not Walsh 'Pompeian' I don't think Chris  -  the base finish looks wrong and I'm sure this isn't Walsh's shade of blue.              Any vague chance it might it be by Arculus and made for Hill Ouston - a product from the late 1920's and '30's ??   There are pix in C.H. C20 Glass volume 1.
Of course, you could well be correct and it may well be Egyptian ;D

Well we could always split the contents between ourselves for safe keeping to stop Dudley council flogging it off, what do you think?
