    I snapped up this unusually shaped glass bowl from a charity shop today. I saw it had some writing on it, and thought it was a rd mark. However, when I got it home and looked carefully I realised it said RACEDARLIN! I asked Hubby what he thought it said, and he said it looked like Grace Darling, without a G on each end. It told me what to look up anyway, and it turns out it is a Celery dish, probably from the 19th century. Grace Darling is a British heroine from the 19th century who rowed out to rescue sailors from a shipwreck. It is 11" long.

      Yes I looked at that, though it is a little longer than my dish, and there is no registration mark on my dish. I will check out Edward Bolton though. Thanks for your info.

      Just looked up Edward Bolton Glass and found his glass works is actually just a little north of me in Warrington, UK. (The firm of 'Edward Bolton, Oxford Lane Glass Works' in Warrington, Cheshire, was a family-run glassworks of considerable size. In 1885 it had at least four furnaces working, supporting a large home market as well as trading abroad).
