Hi all
A friend of mine is the manager at a charity superstore type of thing, he is a glass lover too but often has pieces waiting for me in the back room to ID for him.
Today he had this gorgeous vase which is signed but i really cant make the signiture out at all, unfortunitly i only had the camera on my phone so pics are not great.
The vase stands at around 10 inches tall (ish) has a snapped off pontil and the signiture sits right into the pontil making it very difficult to make out.
I think it starts with an A and the last 2 letters look like RR ??
Any ideas on maker
many thanks
michelle

thanks suzy im now just researching him trying to get an idea on prices my friend John has only put £30 on it but i think it may be to low from the BIN's on ebay although they are often over exagerated.

Not a clue as to prices for his stuff I'm afraid - not coming up with much on searches either.  Hopefully someone else can help.

...but he might be better selling it on fleabay, as I'm not sure most of Fenland would necessarily be up on Anthony Stern. Depends where the shop is.

shops in cambridge, i believe that is Sterns birthplace so there may be a few people in the know on him.
John doesnt do Ebay  ;D, he is a real no no when it come to anything internet wise.
I do quite like it myself, and was very tempted to buy it but at the time couldnt think what the signiture was (plus in a bit strapped right now :P and £30 on something your not sure on is quite a bit) Im working near the shop tomorrow morning so may pop back in and pick it up (if its still there).
I will tell him what it is first though, he normally lets me have things at what they are originally priced at because ive ID'd quite a lot for him in the past.
cheers
