Well done Emmi! 8)

Your first one reminds me of a similar piece I saw a while ago... I have a feeling it was an amber colour and was claimed to be Whitefriars.  It might be worth putting a picture of it on the Is It Whitefriars? site and ask for their views. I may have misremembered of course, but it's niggling at the back of my mind. http://www.whitefriars.com

Can't help with the middle one, but I've seen the third one (clear glass one) attributed as Scandinavian, but without a factory name.  Others may be able to help more of course. :)

Hi All,

Item one, the goblet vase, is indeed Powell, made for Wuidart's "Wealdstone" Range, 1931-34, Ref No. W86.

Another snippet about this... from the dealer website of http://www.whitefriarsglass.com/home.htm  says that Barnaby Powell created the Wealdstone range at Whitefriars and that is was mainly sold in London, via an importer of Scandinavian glass called Wuidart.  This clarifies where Wuidart fits into the picture as I was a little puzzled about that.

Well, hooray, thank you all for your very constructive comments and ID's .Special thanks for Nigel for the Wealdstone ID, most impressed and pleased with that one, as my other favourite site is Whitefriars.com and so far, has been ID'd as W/F, but with no details as above.  And thanks to Anne et al.  

The "donut" description is from my imagination, as it was the closest thing to its appearance I could think of...it can just glow in a corner until I see some definite attribution in the future.

And...as for my South Coast location...I'm in the UK, East Sussex!  Mystery solved!  Have a good day everybody and again many thanks for all the input.

And...another thing

"Wealdstone" Range, 1931-34,

I don't suppose Nigel, you have access to a Wuidart catalogue?? I have had several pieces before which took some research to ID, one was a huge Lido Blue platter/dish which I had to sell for space reasons unfortunately, wish I hadn't now..but I really like this period of glass from Whitefriars and especially the Wealdstone range.  So if there's some resource material you don't mind sharing.....
