Is this Stevens and Williams?
« on: February 23, 2009, 04:13:42 PM »
Hi there, I picked this up the other day, I think it may be Stevens and Williams but not sure. Could anyone help me out identifying it? it is 8" tall and ribbed up the sides. It has pinky/purple and green colours spiralling up from the base, with a ground polished pontil.
Thanks.

You will find few, if any, willing to estimate "value", whatever that means, here.   It's the fastest way of getting it wrong known to mankind!

However, blue/green is the best known colour combination in S&W/Royal Brierley's Rainbow range.   Green/ruby is less frequently met.   Other colour combinations, including some three way combinations, are more scarce.
