I wondered about KS, too, Leni. Of course WS could be Will Shakspeare http://www.shakspeareglass.co.uk/ and he is known for this sort of trailing, but no KS springs to mind at present.  :(

Doh!  :hb2: ::) Now you've said it, of course!  I agree!  Will Shakespeare!  It's very much his style, too.

Have a look here, Marcel  http://www.shakspeareglass.co.uk/

Fantastic  :hiclp:
and even better, i just looked at Will Shakespears website, and identified this vase,
which i was stuck on, now i know maker, i like it twice as much ;D
It has an almost invisible mark on base, but i now read it as 'shaks'
 ;D

Thanks you clever lot,
Andy
