6. Registered Designs

The National Archive website lists 44 designs registered by Reilly between March 1871 and November 1883. (All about Registered Designs and Diamond Marks)

I hope to list them all eventually but, in the meantime, here are some examples in chronological order:

1877, 14th June

1880, 13th October 

18801013

356547w356548w356549w

These three designs ( BT 43/58/356547, 356548 and 356549) share the same date as the diamond mark on the chair pictured above. There are no other designs registered with that date so we must conclude that the chair is a free variant of one of them.

1881, 24th February 

18810224362084w

 

 

18810824

368897w368898w

These images share the date with the mark on the chair pictured (thanks to Laura of Orpington.) They are BT 43/58/368897 and 368898.
