A couple of interesting pieces i picked up a few years ago.
1 is a tall dark blue jug, 11 1/2" clear handle, and a polished pontil mark,
looks very Whitefriars to me, and the other
a blue vase, clear foot, twisted stem, looks english 50s ???
Both pieces have been beautifully etched with roses and other flowers, and signed
by a Frank Campbell, Broadstone, Dorset, it looks like the date is 1982, an what looks
like a little butterfly. although i would have thought the glass was more 1952 :-\
He is quite a good artist with his 'dremmel'?

Any ideas on the origins of the glass? or the artist? or any views at all?
Cheers

Can't say who made the jug, but I have an identical clear glass version with gold hoops - came with matching conical tumblers.  From the 1950s or 60s?

clear footed vase looks like Empoli 1960s/70s
