Christine is the vase in your link frosted then?  and yes that was the one I was referring to.  So, my little blue and white vase is a lot smaller than these as it's only about 3" tall and the brown and white one is smaller ish I think.  But the method of decor looks to be identical (unless this black and white one is frosted?) and the cut rim looks to be done in the same way.  Is Sunderland glass different to Hartley Wood?
thanks

There is a glassblowing studio at www.nationalglasscentre.com/home.html. That's where my vase came from in the 1990s and where the ebay one looks to come from if it is from Sunderland. Your brown vase looks more like Guernsey glass to me, though it's unmarked. Marvering on white blobs is not a very exclusive technique

Hartley Wood was at the Wear Glass Works http://www.cambridgeglassfair.com/exhibitions/pastexhibitions/2004-02-hartleywood.htm

Really surprised to see the Dartington logo on this one.

Dartington Studio, "Alchemy" in Emerald.  ;D
The mark should be two blow pipes etched, along with the Dartington.
