Could be Wedgwood, perhaps the little jasperware plaque has fallen off.

I do know what it is, but I've forgotten right now.
I saw a lovely ambery one, made a mental note to find out, found out, then forgot.
If I find out again, I'll report back. It might have been in the new Hajdamach book.
British. I remember that. :thup:

In 20th Century British Glass there is one by Ronald Stennett Willson page 333 in blue.  Says it is 3 and 5/8th inch high(9.2cm) and says it comes in two sizes.  The handle shape looks right as well.  It says they are often found with a jasperware medallion.
So maybe John is right and the little plaque fell off or was taken off?

Well done, flying-free. (isn't team work great??).
It says that they're sometimes found with the jasperware bit, it's not necessarily missing, Keith.

When I said the one I saw was ambery in colour, I did mean a particularly gorgeous amber - not brownish, or yellowy but that special shade which screams "quality", the one which glows with an almost hidden fire, orangey/reddy.

If it did not have the jasperware disc would it have had the applied prunt?

Do you mean this kind of Wedgwood amber Sue? If so I think it was called Topaz by Wedgwood.

Yup. But you find a similar "glowing and firey" quality in Webb and Stuart glass, probably others too.
None of these (ie, Keith's, the one in the book or the one I saw) seem to have a place where something is missing...(or is it me missing something even more than usual?)
You've got more discs than me!!!!  :P  :P

'Honey amber' I call it,beautiful;there is a mark in the applied piece that looks like something was 'glued' there,heavy for it's size,
