    Given the similarities between the below items and the markings on the base follow the same pattern as other Harrach glass it is definitely produced from this factory.

    Harrach exhibited in the Sydney world exhibition in 1879 so given the second item is put down as c1870 this would match a c1870 attribution.

    Mystery Solved

      Could it be a Worcester mark? Unfortunately i don't have my books with the marks in them as someone has borrowed them.

      Check out the following link. There are two jugs similar to your, both are marked though

      Yes it does look to be not only the same shape and size but it is not inconceivable that the the "W" stands for Worcester.
      Maybe someone else in Worcester was making similarly styled products in glass as I have not seen anything from Royal Worcester for the period made out of glass.
      The decoration around the rim of the ewer is quite unique.
      Someone who has better knowledge of this may be able to at least date it from this and the other decorations?

      Oh, it's glass, never noticed. Have you tried looking into Harrach glass? Some marks here...

      Some vases here with the same pattern number, not sure if coincidence....

      The pattern seems similar but not exaclty the same.

      I think you will find it is by Harrach c1890...:-)

      Thank you tigerchips it is definitely Harrach glass and with the same colouring and style with the same sprays of gilding as I wonder how it ended up in Canberra, Australia?
