Thank you :)


I have found another possible link re the shapes/design being Webb Corbett:-

The Great-Glass site still shows a jam pot in the purple decor of my bowl:
http://www.great-glass.co.uk/shops/shop2-3.htm

http://www.great-glass.co.uk/shops/stock/7149.jpg

On the site it describes it as 'A Stevens & Williams amethyst-bodied "splash glass" jam-pot, the silver-plated lid inscribed 'Argyll' underneath'.

I believe it is a Webb Corbett Agate Flambe range piece (my purple bowl has a silver plated lid as well, but not all the cut and polished rim pieces have a lid)

I completely accidentally noticed this piece on ebay today - it is a cut glass pot in the same shape as the Great Glass jam-pot.  It was made at, and is labelled, 'Tutbury Crystal  full lead'
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tutbury-Crystal-Cut-Glass-Preserve-Mustard-Pot-Jar-with-lid-Boxed-/311808359717?hash=item489939fd25:g:InQAAOSwr~lYrYsg


Tutbury Crystal were formed when the workers were made redundant from what had become the 'Royal Doulton' Webb Corbett factory:
http://www.burtonmail.co.uk/end-era-tutbury-trade-hits-glass-ceiling/story-21544634-detail/story.html





The story in the paper is interesting:

1) I presume they were still making pieces at Tutbury in the same shapes as they had at Webb Corbett
quote from article:

'“We manufacture all our own bespoke crystal — if we have got the mould we can make it. And the cutting side can diversify as much as the customer wants.”'

which would explain why the Tutbury Crystal (lots of cutting work going on there) jam pot is the same shape as the Agate Flambe one on Great Glass


2) And another quote re how their coloured glass is made:

'Darron says the company can also produce coloured glass.

“It’s something that’s very very popular,” he says.

“Basically, the colour isn’t actually in the molten pot, you roll it in the powder colour. ...
”'

So .. at Tutbury, whilst they were making coloured glass and possibly even in the same shapes as Webb Corbett, it was not with coloured glass in the pot.

Glass / ID please for glass with duck and flora engraving on the bowl
« Last post by user9318 on February 22, 2017, 02:56:47 PM »
I have a glass that has a lovely flora and a flying duck engraving the bowl. The foot is plain, which has a thin inner rim on the foot underside edge. The glass is 4½" tall 4.2cm top rim diameter with a foot diameter of 5.3cm.

Does anyone know the age of this glass and maker or country of origin.

Thank you.

Glass / Crystal Glass Lidded Box - Red cut to Clear
« Last post by antonizz on February 22, 2017, 02:55:02 PM »
Hello everybody,

I've bought this crystal glass box online.
It looks like Bohemian glass (for me as an beginner).

Can somebody trace this back to origin and date?

Too bad there are a couple of chips off of the edge,
but when the lid is on you won't notice it anymore.

I believe this is crystal. Red cut to Clear.
-Figures showing a pelican. Also a deer, I believe, and something else.

By the way, is this ruby red? of raspberry red?
Or something else.


If anybody knows more about it I of course would love to know!

Thank you very much in advance!

Kind regards,
R.Antonis

Sorry, sausage fingers.
But a time machine is still required unless you make a specific appointment.
I wanted to check the different colours of Stuart Strathearn Dark Crystal.
There is an image of the catalogue photo on Scotland's Glass, but it's impossible to make the colours out.
