At first glance the shapes look quite Nouveau, clearer and less pixilated photos would help.

This seems a bit more complex than some, the red and black colours give it a sort of sophisticated feel! Looks somehow a bit 'Barovier' like, I will look in my books for clues when I get home tonight.

Many thanks for the info. It is the smaller round one that I have and I've always thought it was a flower bowl.

As it happens I'm just off to a boot fair but won't be looking for the metal plates, the bowl looks better without.  I was thinking it might have had a small glass flower block inside.

Thanks again for your reply.

British & Irish Glass / Re: Henry Greener Blue Slag Glass Sugar Bowl & Creamer

An interesting comparison, I think, is Henry Greener's 'Beaconsfield' commemorative sugar & creamer RD 325547 of 31 August 1878.

In addition to the specific Beaconsfield commemorative decoration, these also have the shamrock, thistle and rose embossed decoration, and the overall shape and style of the pieces is very similar to those shown in the opening posts.

The date of the Beaconsfield design registration also correlates well with the 1st lion trademark ( although the Beaconsfield pieces only bear the registry date lozenge).

A matching dish or underplate in white opaque glass; diameter approximately 5.5 inches. Marked with the 1st lion trademark.

Thank you for showing these, Roy.

The trademark is definitely the 1st Lion mark (c1875 - c 1885).

I attach photos of the tall-pedestal sugar bowl and a matching creamer in green marbled glass, and also in white opaque glass (all bearing the 1st lion trademark but no RD number).

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone might know what kind of glass this is, where it might be from or who created it?  There are no makers marks on them and they are about 7" or 8" high.  Thank you so much.
