Click here for gallery of additional images.

H 10" 25.8cm, max d 4" 10cm, foot d 3½" 8.8cm, w 1lb 6oz 626g.   Pontil scar fairly roughly smoothed.

(http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10318/DSCF070346a.jpg)

Three views of the signature from slightly different angles.   There is a tiny mark underneath the third or fourth letter of the signature which could be part of the signature, possibly something like the bottom of a script "g", "j" or "y", or it may be part of the pontil scar finishing and nothing to do with the signature.

Any ideas?

First letter looks a bit like an E as in Eickholt maybe...?

Just a thought.

ohhh i was thinking the same thing, i had a paperweight ID on here the other day and that was eickholt, cant seem to find much about the signiatures apart from whats on ebay. Most of the signiature seem to be quite differrent as there was lots of different designers signing the work.
Here is the link to the paperweight i listed on here, hopefully it may help

Definitely not Eickholt. The last three letters look like they could be -arc to me. This one looks like it should be easy, but it is very difficult. The letters change, depending on the way one tries to put them together.

Robert Eickholt has retired and closed the Eickholt Glass Studio as of November 2008.
which probably explains why the site isn't showing up anywhere.

A long shot — I've just been reading Roger Dodsworth's essay on Gray-Stan in BGbtW, and wondered whether this mystery signature could be an unusual engraved Gray-Stan signature.

Any views?

As TxSilver stated...that is not Robert Eickholt's signature nor his style/work. Since his Town Street studio was only 15 minutes from me here in Columbus, Ohio, I used to drop in 2-3 times a year & before that studio opened I dropped in to his westside operation back in the late 70s even before he officially became "known" & started signing his pieces. I've never seen an Eickholt's signature that was not clearly legible. Attached is an unsigned large bowl of his that dates around 1975 from the old westside location.
