But IMO that doesnt make all brown glass EH.

Of course not - however, a certain toffee coloured glass with irregular bubbles and carbonised inclusions (didn't EH bung the odd potato in the pot to cause his particular style of bubble?) on an item with firepolished rims and a chunky simplistic design could well be.

Oops, was just composing an answer to that point myself!  :D

Sorry, I missed this bit last night.

I don't think the 'likely Höglund' attributions given are solely because of the glass colour. It's a combination of disparate elements that on their own wouldn't necessarily point towards Höglund but that together may do - including, yes, the colour, but also the gradiated effect, the strong naive form, the bubbles (along with the carbonised inclusions), the manner and quality of the finish, and the general similarity to documented Höglund designs (cylindrical mould-blown form with long hand-worked neck).

Just spotted this auction for a similarly-shaped decanter, clearly from the same stable as mine:

Unfortunately their (mis)attribution is of no use - but the listing does at least illustrate another shape from the series, whoever made it!
