In 1887, Greener & Co. advertised new designs of pressed crystal glass ware in The Pottery Gazette. Two of these pages contained items in pattern number 2006. The glass table ware consisted of various sized bowls, both oval and round, cream jugs, sugar bowls, butter dishes, salver, sweet dishes, salt, ash tray, comport and boat shaped flower troughs. Whilst the supplement pages do not give details of the colours the range was produced, they are commonly found in amber and clear flint glass, sometimes in blue and occasionally in pearline.
The daisy and button pattern was very popular in the late Victorian era. Greener & Co.’s version features plain scalloped edges, stems, handles and finials. The only exception to this was on the boat shaped flower troughs, which have ribbed edges.
Although the pattern was not a registered design, the pieces shown here have the Greener & Co. trademark of a demi rampant lion holding a halpberd impressed into the interior of the pieces.
The 2006 pattern forms the basis of the other pattern Greener & Co. introduced in the 1887 Pottery Gazette Supplemental pages. Pattern 2007 incorporates panels of this design seperated by flutes. The scalloped edge is different, as well as the shape of the knobs on the lids.
