Had a good haul at the bs this morning, and one seller made my buy both pieces in the first pic., because he thought they belonged together. The smaller desert bowl is etched on the base Rd. 681649/Stuart (underneath). But it is the larger piece that has beaten me so far, because I am unable to read the engraved/etched wording, and don't think it's in Ivo's book. Have tried to take a pic. but not easy, and am hoping someone can recognize the outline of the words. Piece is remarkably delicate and fragile, and gives the most wonderful long lasting ring when 'flicked', and has a fantastic hum when wet. Size is 15.75 (tall) x 16 wide cms. -and has a very neatly broken pontil. Am judging from other items on the stall that piece cud easily be pre 1940 - and I did of course think the obvious when I saw the three delicate machine threaded rings - but can't see anything in Jackson's book. All thoughts very gratefully received. thanks Paul S.
