No, and it's gorgeous - is that a trial piece maybe?
 I only have a couple of bits somewhere now.

I had a beautiful Heron glass yellow vase that I sold.  I regret it slightly.  Their yellow iridescent glass was gorgeous and very thick and heavy compared to their other colours.

I have had a yellow RB studio lamp base, but it's not the Harris design, it's sort of got white speckly bits in.
Sorry, I gave it to somebody, so no pics.
I also saw a large yellow and white globe vase in a Charity shop last week, in the Harris design. It had a lot of fairly big white patches on it, not nearly as attractive as the piece you are showing here.

I think the colours get stretched too much in large pieces, so I'm afraid I left it behind. That, and the fact that it had a big footprint and Michael would throw a wobbly....

Keith I think (from memory though could be wrong), that that particular shape is an early one, that's why I was wondering if it might have been a trial - it's really fab.
