Glass / Re: Mystery Bell / candle snuffer?

just had a vague memory ......    might these things be held in some form of frame and be used, cavity upward, for candles??
Thank you. That's seems to have identified a few pieces as Walther.

Just under 7 inches tall, only decent piece I could find after a days searching !  ::)
British & Irish Glass / Jobling trinket set Registration 795794.
« Last post by Paul S. on Yesterday at 03:40:12 PM »
just before I post Archive (Kew) pix for the above -  of a tray, stick, powder/cream pots and ring stand  -  would appreciate some guidance from folk please.
My picture of the above items - almost certainly in some shade of Jade - shows Registration No. 795794 only ............   however, the Blue Book shows No. 795793 only, from 22.08.1934 and makes no mention of my No.

I may have made a mistake and not looked at Representation pages either side, and as a consequence may have missed another part of the same trinket set, which for whatever reason was numbered 795793.

I've parted with my Jobling book, so unable to determine what image is being referred to under the first of these two numbers.     Anyone able to help please.

I understand there are some fox hunting folk who don't mind a rough bottom - it looks like Dartington's Kingfisher  -  where's John, he might know if this is Dartington.            I've looked through the books but have to admit to not seeing this one.               This would have been for decoration only though, surely.

Thank you for showing the Davidson RD 254027 design representation, Paul.

This is the basic design behind the Davidson 1896 suite (a.k.a. "Somerset" by American collectors).
There are quite a lot of different shapes known in this pattern, and they can be found in clear, blue pearline, yellow pearline and pink 'Rosalin' glass.

A selection is shown on the GMB RD database at and sequence, and on the GMB Davidson Pattern Numbers database at and sequence.

It has a very rough bottom rim that you really wouldn't want to drink from

Contrary to what might be thought from earlier comments, the National Archives image shows a model without the plinth - as you can see.
Bit over optimistic of me to think we might also see the wording - since the animal is standing then no chance of that, although would assume it carried the 'Regn. Appld. for.' version, since the model that we see in the Archives picture would doubtless have been made prior to the company being granted a Registration No.
Leave Steven to comment :)

You can just make out the African sun setting over the elephant's back.  (assume it's an African elephant?)
I was just going to add this set of mine  and ask if it is Walther 'Flora' then saw you have part of the same set...
My tray is slightly different to one illustrated rest looks the same though...    Walther Flora candlestick same basic shape

quote............   " is it possible for someone to put up pix showing clearly the difference between 214357 and 214357".          What a muppet - my apologies, it should of course have read 214357 and 214358.              thanks for the comments Fred - I'll come back to this one a little later.

Meantime - here is the National Archives image of the hexagonal lidded jar - Davidson's Registration 254027 - the original design based on a plate rather than the jar.      Davidson not really my thing, so no idea if this was one of those multiple pieces from a large 'suite' or not  -  Davidson quite keen I believe on suites.            Anyone else have pieces with this design?

Perhaps we can tidy this thread up a little??           the subject heading might be made more useful, and this Davidson reference might be hived off to stand alone perhaps?
