Frank, the John airlie 1973 sig looked a bit dremeled or scratchy, so maybe it could be someones early sig.

Why are you always so quick to be negative Frank, this is a superb little vase. I once had a piece of Tiffany glass that looked just  as "Dremeled" as this does, if someone was to "dremel" a piece surely they would use a, instantly recognisable, mark. :spls:

It is a nice vase but the sig really spoils it IMHO. More an observation than being negative.
