Hi Folks,
 I spotted this Art Nouveau/Arts and Crafts vase in the US and repatriated it back to England. Anyone know  the maker, i suspect either Stuart or Powell but as its not really my speciality i thought i would ask and try to pin down a maker. The vase stands 5 3/4" tall and is 8 1/2" in dia. Cheers Wayne.

I'd be worried about the hard glare iridescence, the absence of wear on the stand ring and the donut prunts - none of which points at Art Nouveau.

Hi Ivo,
 No the vase is not iridescent, and the trailed decoration protrudes from the base to the pontil and they have taken all the wear, Its period glass and yes i agree more Arts and Crafts than Nouveau, we were more restrained over here, but it would still could be classed as Nouveau over here. Cheers Wayne.

In some ways I hope I'm wrong about it being a recent piece. Because if it isn't it's a cuspidor.

It reminds me also of Stuart although their pieces seem lighter with a peacock feather type design,Powells I'm not familiar with but there are plenty out there that will know I'm sure,Keith.

I don't think it's recent. the color and shape remind me of a stevens and williams piece I recently saw with a line drawing. it's not exactly the same but the color and basic design is similar. I agree though, older English.

Stuart is the first that comes to mind, but as you'll see in the following threads, many companies were responsible for similar pieces with the peacock feather decoration.
