Thanks.  (I rather liked the idea of 'Shangri La' as a maker....)

Seller also describes it as faceted, which Shangri-La (1987 ed 150) was, I don't see any facets nor is it the same design. Nor can I see it in Charlton or on SG so perhaps it is not CG?

I can't decipher it, but could be a Selkirk signature.  Looks like Peter Holmes' 'writing' to me.   And there's a Shangri La listed for Selkirk in 1987 (in 'Paperweights from Great Britain') but sometimes Selkirk editions crossed two years or even more.
