Hi
I had a look through for this when you posted and didn't find anything  - I read it as Gil White or Eric? White - and just noted what fabulous handwriting.  Even done on glass which must be very hard, it's a beautiful script.
I'll keep looking.

Just wondering - if it's that small and that light, is this like lampworked glass?

The signature is Eric White. He created hand blown studio glass from a workshop I believe in Esher. There are three pieces displayed in the V & A. I have 17 beautiful pieces but have strangely never managed to find anything about him on the web. Would welcome any further information.

Oh thank you so much! I wonder why there is no information about him anywhere?
Thank you very much!

Just a bit of extra info to the thread, the V& A have a glass perfume bottle Eric White dated 1980 and it says lampworked.
and just found this on ebay  apparently a Queens Jubilee perfume signed Eric White, shape of a crown, has it's own certificate of authentication signed Eric White and comes in a hard cardboard presentation box.

I have the same piece. I have a flyer with photo's of his work and a little bit about him but I've never been able to see any other info in books or online. the lady I purchased from originally said that perfume bottles had been commissioned for Princess Diana & Nancy Reagan, but I don't know if this is true. I can forward you a copy of my info if you would like. Regards

Just for the record, here are a couple of pictures of the Silver Jubilee PB. It is signed "Eric White 142/500 1978". I would love to know more about Eric if anyone can provide it. Thanks.

I have some information on Eric White and I attach a flyer which illustrates his work and gives some info. The V&A purchased 3 bottles in 1980 one of which is a crown, two of the bottles remain on display in the glass section. The silver jubilee crowns were in several different designs, there was a limited edition of 500 of each design.

According to information in the bottle boxes Eric White was born in 1925, lectured in glass at Isleworth and had a studio at Hampton Court/Esher. Unfortunately there seems to be no information on him anywhere on the internet.
