Hello, this is my first post and I feel a bit of a fraud as I am more interested in the glass barrell and I hope the marks on the collar and lid may help. This is a blown glass biscuit barrell, possibly Stourbridge made with a Daniel & Arter collar and lid. Does anyone have any information about this please? Both the collar and lid have the D&A mark, the globe and EPNS. It then has H7046 1/4 (quarter). Can anyone tell me what these numbers mean?
Thanks UV. I had seen that website and also followed up with Companies House on the demise of the company. The D & A marks varied over the time they were in business. I wondered if anyone else on the forum had researched this or knew of research that had been carried out. I wondered whether an EPNS collector knew the timescales of each mark, or where I may find the information. I am sure that this website harboured a plethera of information in its correspondents. Sometimes it avoids doing work twice.
Thank you for your help. I will carry on the search whilst it still is just in living memory. I will post anything I find.
