I have just gone back to th eoriginal discussion on GMB about the Dragonfly dish and found another post added this year which suggests that Fenton made Dragonfly dishes in 1935 (or maybe Mayfly) so perhaps one of our American collectors can help here if they have any Fenton catalogues from that era !!

Hi Colin

The dragonfly dish was the cause of much discussion on the GMB site  and it was Bernard C a British glass dealer who gave me this answer as quoted. I have a Jobling catalogue and it is not featured there but if it was considered a poor  image of a dragonfly and discontinued perhaps that would explain why. When I first purchased it I thought it was by VLG as I have other pin dishes by them with a fish design see picture below. But the dragonfly one is smaller and  more finely made with greater detail. I think your suggestion of Mayfly's is worthy of further investigation..glad you liked it anyway.

Classy, you may want to copy and paste some of this info you posted on comment wall onto forums above so it gets archived.

Good luck with your new group Colin.  Thanks for posting your beautiful pictures.  That serpent vase is really interesting.

So glad you started this group Colin..my favourite era of glass.... I would be interested in knowing of the rarer pieces to look out for such as my Jobling 'Dragon Fly' pin dish which was apparently only made for a short time and I quote 'Dragonfly Tray was a disaster.   Dragonflies don't have different length wings, eye-spots on their wings, bendy bodies in flight, and, worst of all, eight legs!!!   And a substantial proportion of the middle classes, Jobling's target market for this glass, was fully aware of this.   So production of the Dragonfly Tray was abandoned, and the trays all destroyed - except that, as always, one or two escaped one or two escaped.'
