When I magnify the signature image by 400% I see, in reverse, on the opposite side of the glass:
© 82 FHC [or FHG or FHO]
LIMITED
EDITION

Perhaps that will help to provide even more info?

Hi there Kev yes I was trying to get an image of that on here you are right, it was so stressful getting the ones I have on here i gave up. Is there some way i can trace those marks its FHG. The marks are on the base and the pontil is indented into the bottom of the vase in a kind of peak.

But can I also see in the background a copyright 'C' and the words '82 FHC Limited Edition'?  :huh:

No better reason for buying, IMHO!  :D  No shame there!  The shame is that people spoil a nice item by putting a fake sig on it  >:(  ..... If it is a fake!  I suppose it could be genuine  :huh:  It just seems a bit unlikely, to be honest.

There's another one here with the same 82 FHG Limited Edition stamp but no mention of a signature: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190199759896
