Not sure if this is a good place to post this question - but maybe. I've researched this some but found TMI - I wonder if anyone here can shed some light on how to date this jar.
Bottom reads: Trade Mark Lightning Putnam with the number 409 or 419 - the middle number is hard to decipher. Marks on the lid are as follows: PAT 2 JAN. 5. 75, REIS and a small D JUNE 5. 77.
Anyone know what all those numbers mean ... especially the ones on the lid?
TIA for any info.
I don't know where to being to find this. I googled the initials, but no luck.
Got this at auction. It was called as Waterford; it was in a lot of 15 pieces. I can't find any marking on it. What do the Waterford experts think? Thanks!
I recently acquired this Waterford piece and am kind of stumped as to the pattern. My Waterford book shows it to be pre-1987 in age. The cuts above the diamond pattern are all equal in height with no staggering in height. I first thought maybe Lismore because there were so many pieces made in this pattern, but I'm just not sure, because this pattern shows staggering of the cuts above the diamond pattern. I also am not sure if this is a small individual creamer or possibly a syrup pitcher as it measures about 3" in overall height to top of handle and 2" across shortest diameter of bowl. Any help would be appreciated.
Can anyone help with this stemware? Even the maker would be great.
The stem is faceted with narrow facets, and the rounded knob at the top is faceted on the top. The bowl has a criss-cross cut with an elongated thumbprint above. They are really nicely made. They are thin, but relatively heavy and have a nice ding when tapped.
As always, any help is appreciated! Thanks.
I know this isnt exactly pottery or glass..but it is lovely. It's marked only 800 and looks brass "ish"...maybe plated silver? Anyway it's a part of something I just can't figure out what..! maybe a drawer piece from a bank? or ?? i'd appreciate any feedback at all. Thanks in advance. Oh...it's very small and I thought at first it may have been something to hold matches..? but it's a little shallow
