I have recently acquired a vase that has a backstamp of Glenfiddich. It matches the style and shape of early vases made before the Highbank Company took over production.
It thus looks like a marketing item produced for Glenfiddich.
If anyone has any further information on it – please get in touch.
All of the galleries have been updated to include the latest items and photos gathered. Many thanks to Vone and Linda for sending through photos of their own items to add.
There are now 932 photos in the gallery and in various locations on the site – so this is becoming a comprehensive view of Highbank production over the years.
The number of brooches in the gallery has increased – so there is now a dedicated page for them rather than keep them in the miscellaneous page
Many thanks to Bob Keltie for some great photos of a Clyde Puffer boat – see the boat section under the gallery link.
The Animals Gallery now includes the original product code and description under each photo where we have it.
There is also a searchable table of these – see link under Gallery/Animals tab or click Animal-List.
We hope this is useful to you in order to catalogue your collection.
If you have any others – please let us know using the contact form.
There is a new Brochures tab on the site. It has scans of product catalogues and brochures that we have found. Many thanks to Alison for the 20 page catalogue scan.
Have a look through and see the range that was available during company production.
There is a new page under the Gallery menu item – the Last Twenty Uploaded Photos.
Please have a look at the latest photos that have been added and come back regularly to see any changes.
We have added the ability to post comments from the homepage – so please use the facility to send comments or ideas.
We are building up a list of artists initials to be found on Highbank Items – see the list on the backstamps page. We could do with your help in filling in details of the artists. Do you know any of the people who worked there and can help?
The web-site has been updated this weekend with many new photos in the gallery.
I have also added backstamp 12 – Midton Crafts. Whilst not actually Highbank – it is clear that Midton and Ardfern have a shared history based upon the porcelain type, shape and patterns.
Is there anyone out there who can shed some further light on the shared history so that we can add this to the site?
