Shiona adds "Looks very much like an Orr, and I think it's engraved on an Edinburgh crystal blank."

I had already found a close match on the blank, see above, so perhaps a change in the title - Scottish blank  :thup:

Cool!  I wondered if I'd ever find out who made this.  It's been sitting on my kitchen shelves with a Stephen Rickard engraved goblet for years now.   :)

I'll add photos later and a close up of the signature.  ...thanks to Shiona too.  xx

Hi,
   this glass is definately by Norman Orr.... I have just purchased 5 of his watercolors and the style is unmistakeable.

How interesting Invertiel!   :D  I am sure that many people would like to see those watercolours.  Is there any chance you could attach them to another post so that we could see them?  Please contact me at:       maxeen   AT  aol.com   if you have any problems.   :)

Hi There,

This definitely looks like a Norman Orr engraving. I am his daughter in law. Can you please contact me regarding the engraving?

I have a Norman Orr glass engraving which I am thinking of putting to auction. It is Pegasus engraved on a glass orb and dates from 1991, possibly one of the last pieces Norman did. I have had this from new and it has never been displayed or seen in public. I shall try to post photos if you like.
