TWH marked LOUGHTON - Thomas (Tom) W. Howard

Post by i2h on November 22nd 2015, 12:53 pm

Can anyone help me identify the maker of this bottle/decanter. On the base it is impressed with a Monogram that looks to be TWH and the number 58 which I'm guessing is perhaps a Shape Number. It's also impressed LOUGHTON. The actual bottle measures about 9 inches tall by about 6.5 inches across. The mouth of the bottle has a cork seal into which the top fits. Thanks.

It's a ring flask. They also made them in Scotland and Hungary etc.

Beswick was at Loughton, Essex, so maybe someone was allowed to do a bit of private work

Potty beat me to it but the 58 is the year of manufacture so................. 1958.

That's great. I'd spent ages looking on Google with no joy at all. Now that I have the name, it seems very easy to get some details about the maker - so many thanks to everyone who looked and/or replied but particularly to Potty and Studio-pots.
