ID please...

sandblasted (I think) surface with coloured trails and blobs, 21cm (8 1/4in) high, heavy.

1st word = Robert or Roberta?
2nd word = ****ter or ****ton or similar?
dated      = 2003

Maybe one for Adam A with it being signed on an unpolished base  ;)

Many thanks,
Martyn.

Could it possibly be Robin Smith?  Melting Pot Glass works in Lancashire, he works with another ex-Dartington chap Jeff Walker.   :huh:

I guess it's possible Max stylistically it has some similarities to his work (maybe a little simpler)....the sig does'nt quite look like Robin Smith to me, but I have'nt one of his for comparison...?

thanks for the idea.

 Checkout Robert Eickholt he is American, His early paperweights were just signed Eickholt and year ie 1990 but he does a lot of beautiful vases with more room on base for full signature but i cant say i have seen any with satin finish. google his site.Regards JP.

Hi JP,
That's another maybe...He does make pieces with 'etched' surfaces and it does look similar.

Points against are....most of his pieces seem to have ground and polished bases, from what I can see online I would say his look more detailed/complex and a bit sharper, also the signature shape on this vase just does'nt seem to fit with his but the 1st letter maybe an 'E'? The best guess I can make might be Easter, Easton, Feston. All that said you maybe right, if I could find a piece of his with the 'Robert' engraved clearly that might decide it...I'll do some more digging.

Many thanks.

Hi Ross,

well, I had completely forgoton about this (don't even know if I still have it somewhere) but thanks very much indeed, it's a new name to me.

Two and a half years for an ID and I was only 3 letters short to start with and actually said it might be Easton a few posts later :thud:

Very much appreciated, but please don't leave it so long next time  ;)

*off to try and find it now*

(PS. mods can move to Resolved)

2½ years isn't a record here - I think our longest ID's around 5 years later, Martyn! :24:  Good to finally have a result though, thanks Ross. :)
