You can see it illustrated in , and it was registered on the 20th June 1876. The peacock is the makers mark for Sowerby, who was one of the foremost manufactuers of this glass, and many books have information on this old English factory, which continued until the middle of the 20th Century. The style is typical of the period of the 1870's.
