Here's another fun one.  I'm calling it the Lady Bourbon for lack of a better identification, but was hoping someone has found an ad or other identification.  Lisa has one on her website listed as the Baroness, but notes it is a tentative identification based on crystal specifications.  Since there is an a 1930 Baroness in the database, with an ad, that is clearly incorrect.  Anyway, any insights would be appreciated...

Hi dhhirsch, I've seen three of these now, all three had a different dials, until we find that elusive ad I guess we won't know which is correct. This one is by far the nicest condition of the three. Here's a shot of mine.

We could call it Marie Antoinette, I think she was the last Bourbon Queen. On second thought, maybe Unknown would be best for now.

Thanks Geoff,

Interesting that they all have different dials.   Hopefully an ad will eventially be found that will solve the mystery of what the dial should look like and the name for the model...

Amazing dial, certainly is interesting how the dials vary, as we normally wouldn't see this in other models to this extent. As Geoff said..... where's that allusive advert.

Unknown for me also at this stage.
