Same sort of date for the Bagley Elf as well, 1935-1975, just longer!

Definitely no mark on mine at all - I've been over it with a magnifier.  Is the blue a known Webb or Richardson colour?

As far as the shape is concerned. Monart had variations on this shape from the 1920's.

I know of the various pressed glass bowls in this shape, but I thought this blown type might be later - perhaps '50's?  Not sure why  :-\ 

Anyway, it has now found a place standing up ( :o ) on a window sill, and looks fantastic with the light streaming through it!  :D  (OK, I know, it'll probably burn the house down!  LOL  ::)

Nazeing also had this shape in their 1930s catalogue as Posy Bowl in two styles of finish and several sizes up to 14 inches, again it would not be distinctly different to yours. And their is at least one other type regularly seen that is generally thought to be 30s-50s and always gets described as Monart or Nazeing but was neither.

Hi Leni
Take a look at my bowl not quite the same but very close, I feel mine could be Monart

Definitely not Monart, probably English and I think a company Nigel is researching but not yet revealing.

I wonder which company first derived the mushroom shape? Monart, perhaps, or was it much earlier? The shapes can be seen from pottery companies as well, of course, so it might have been copied from here.

The idea is to give a dome of flowers low on the table, Monart used many pottery shapes so I would expect the idea to be a fair bit earlier.
