No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

I bet they'd taste much nicer from a proper grapefruit dish though Paul, and you have somewhere to pop your pips!  ;D

thanks Anne  -    the puzzle with these really is reconciling the unblemished underside of the feet with the apparent date line of this mark.      I suppose we have to again say these have been in Grannies cupboard, unused ;D        I think it was a similar 'glass in boxes' that persuaded me to thin out  -  but of course everyone to their own.         I ought to use these  -  I do have the occasional half a grapefruit, but in a boring china bowl.

Those are nice Paul! I do like grapefruit dishes - they are one of my earlier collections - I think I have around 40 or 50 of them packed away in boxes in the wardrobe, but none of these. (That's not a hint btw!)

I have a small footed glass which I think is the same design but is unmarked on the base, so maybe my glass is Webb too... (fingers crossed!)

Thank you Walden, I much appreciate your permission to use your photos. By the way, don't feel bad about it - there's still so much I don't know about glass or these sets too, despite doing this for a fair few years now...  I always say that my theme song is Jimmy Ruffin's "There are more questions than answers ... and the more I find out the less I know!"  ;D

The Glass Trinket Set website wouldn't have got this far if it wasn't for the help and generosity of others here on the board and elsewhere who have provided photos, catalogues, information, etc... that is all helping to build a resource for everyone to use. It's nowhere near done, I'm sure there are hundreds more catalogues to find and designs to identify, and equally sure that there will be some that remain a mystery for various reasons, such as those from short-lived glassworks, or loss of records (accidentally or intentionally or as a result of war), etc... Every snippet of info helps enormously but it's like trying to complete a 10,000 piece jigsaw without a picture when some of the pieces might have got lost or eaten by the dog too - exciting, frustrating, but worthwhile!

I sincerely hope one does Paul! I do love finding new or uncatalogued pieces, frustrating though they may sometimes be...  8)

this is more for the 'Conifer' surface pattern that the shape and probably best seen on the third picture  -  the overall pattern is like the outline of scales seen on a pine cone, but difficult to show  when photographing clear glass.       As for the back stamp, we're back to what the books describe as the factory mark for c. 1935 - 1949, though this pair look to be very un-worn and date wise more recent, but who knows.         When flicked there is a good long lead glass ring, and height is a little over 4 inches.
