No idea if it is but Woodward mentions in Edinburgh Crystal that "Reticella - decoration with threads or white or coloured glass embedded in clear cross and criss-crossing to form a filigree network." as being one of the specialities of Mr A Jenkinson’s Leith Walk Glass Works. c 1876. Obviously also a Venetian product.

Larger images and one of under base would be useful too.

I agree, it would be great to see bigger photos, and more of them.  A couple photos of a plate would be nice, too.  Very nice piece!  Looks more modern than 19th C to me.

Is there a pontil scar? And has it been polished?

hi Frank
there is a pontil and if i run my finger across there is danger of cutting...this is on the plates...the bowl has a polished pontil and reason being that the item stands flat...whereas the plates are slightly concave.
