Wayne — There's a good match to the low level peacock's eye trailing and other features of your piece in Gulliver, positively attributed by Mervyn Gulliver, working from the original factory pattern books, to Stuart, and dated c.1900.

Thanks for that info Bernard, it looks as though my initial suspicions were right. So for now then i shall give it a "most likely" attribution to Stuart, thanks again Wayne.

Andy, that's quite a different pattern though. It doesn't have the peacock feather decoration at all and it's hard to tell whether the colour is a match.

Despite what I said before I must agree with Andy,Stuarts 'peacock' glass has a lighter appearance with the applied decor' standing less proud than the Stevens and Williams piece on Andy's link which matches, in my opinion, with  Wayne's,Keith

of course, it was Warren's site. yes, that is the piece I was referring to. that style of glass is not usually my thing so I was having a hard time placing where I saw it.

Yes the one on Warrens site does have similarities, and i know you cannot judge the colour accurately from different photos but they do have a very similar hue, and i thought identifying Iridescent Bohemian was difficult. Thanks again for everybody's input. Cheers Wayne.

Wayne, get hold of a copy of Victorian Decorative Glass: British Designs, 1850 - 1914, by Mervyn Gulliver, and compare with the vase on p. 89.

Mod: changed to correct my own spelling. It's 'Mervyn', not 'Mervin'.  :spls2:
