I have the very informative book – Pall Mall Glass by Hugo Wildblood. Mr. Wildblood provides this quote from a reference of Andy McConnell of Miller’s Antiques:
“The pattern was available in differing qualities in Britain and across the Empire between the wars. It is now known that the high quality pieces are attributed to Kosta. Wuidhart & Co was a British import Company for Orrefors, Kosta and Rorstrand Porcelain. Th Kosta archives show a drawing of a cocktail glass with etched top bands and cut criss cross pattern to the base. It is dated Okt 1940, for October 1940 and gives a pattern number of 7534W. This set is identical to that drawing with the cut lower decoration.”
Mr. Wildblood dates these pieces from the first half of the twentieth century with the pattern being reborn more recently with a design called Lady Hamilton. This pattern doesn’t have the cuts. Instead there is an etch to mimic the cuts. These pieces are not nearly as attractive as the older pieces.
There is something very attractive about Pall Mall. Lots of interesting shapes. This piece would make a great beer jug!
