Cheers Andy
                  Looks like the engraving could have been done by Christine Beaton, as that is the only name i can find which would fit the intials CB and it may have been done by copperwheel.

I can confirm that Christine Beaton was a copperwheel engraver, just added her first weight design:

Not yet, those two were 1976 so by then she had finished training but was probably engraving glass. If Helen (first engraved weight 1978) looks in we might get more data, else we have to wait until more glassware catalogues are available.
