some proper cobalt blue in the blue on that left hand one John?
Looks very similar to the blue swirls in my button rim fish vase.

Very observant, Lustrousstone!
yes, looking for the "seaweed" effect helps.
John's last pic looks awfully like my tall one, internally.

This is my signed one.

Here is an example of Clyne Farquharson's signature on a JWW 'Leaf' vase I bought last week dated 1938. As you can see he didn't always add NRD.

Re: Inkstand, RD 154589, registered on 9 September 1862 by Robert Woods (proprietor) of 6, Angel & Porter Court, Golden Lane, St Luke's, London [EC1]. Class 3: glass. 

This seems to have been Woods' only design registration.

Can't find any more info about Robert Woods at the moment. Angel & Porter Court no longer exists (the area suffered extensive damage in the Blitz). There was an Angel & Porter in Golden Lane (records between 1768 and 1809) presumably adjoining Angel & Porter Court.

Grace's Guide for 1929 records William Bernstein (Furriers) of 5-8 Angel and Porter Court, Golden Lane, London, EC1., "Manufacturers of the Mink-Marmot Coat, excellent numbers in Natural Musquash, Squirrel and Mole, good sellers in Beaver, Seal and Musquash Coney, Opossum, etc."

Thank you for showing this 'marmalade', Chris. I will add the pictures to the GMB RD database as being from the RD bundle  "288498/9/500  -  16.01.1875  -  butter/marmalade/marmalade" and tweak the entries accordingly if more info. come to light.

Paul - the only Seago pictures I have are for the ice pail RD 289821 of 9 March 1875 (which are on the GMB RD database) , and would love to see any other Seago RD pics in due course.

This one I sold some time ago, regretting it now! I can't remember if it was facet cut or not but I expect it was.

Thank you for the A.W. Digby genealogy details, Anne.

Definitely an 'interesting' family - stuffy, moralistic, middle class Victorians be blowed!  As a Victorian lady-in-waiting  is supposed to have said after watching a production of Shakespeare's 'Antony and Cleopatra' at the theatre -  "How very different from the home life of our own dear Queen".
