    Victorian circa 1885 and probably English - Stevens & Williams? Six lobed projections with rolled over tooled top. Cranberry threading. This is the only one of this design that I've seen. Most similar threaded dishes are circular and lack the crystal petal pinch-work at the top. Many of them are underplates for bowls. Pontil is smooth. This item was recently purchased on-line in England. Dimensions 15.5 cms [6 inches] across the top at widest point and 3 cms high. Nice weight for its size. The design catches the light very well and reflects light in interesting flower like patterns.

      Very interesting item, & a fine example of machine threaded glass!

      Yes, IronLace it is indeed a pretty dish, especially when placed under a light. It caught my eye immediately when I saw it listed and the price was right, so I had to bid. I have seen many threaded dishes and plates but this example was different. I have seen a picture of a glass threading machine in a glass reference book. It was taken in 1902 in the Stuart Glass House. One glassmaker turned the article while another spun the glass from a punty rod at the side. This man controlled the tightness and thickness of the glass coil as it came off the rod. I think it was John Northwood, the designer for S & W, who was responsible for the patent for this machine.
