I found a reference in Hajdamach's book that said that the rings at the top and bottom are a characteristic of work done at Stevens and Williams.
Dave, could you please let me know where this is said. I imagine it's in British Glass 1800-1914
but I don't recall where.
Thing is, I have always thought that the rings at top and bottom of cameo pieces were a common motif and certainly used by Thomas Webb & Sons, Stevens & Williams and Richardson. For example, in British Glass
, plates 202 and 203, on page 214, there are illustrations from a Richardson pattern book which show variations of the feature.
I have also looked through the Ray & Lee Grover book, English Cameo Glass
, but other than coming up with the possibility that the pattern on your vase may be "apple blossom", I have not found anything yet to confirm or deny a maker.
One thing that struck me was that on your piece, the general cameo work appears quite "solid", although the leaves do show a good level of detailed carving. Also, the rings at both foot and rim seem to be rather uneven and of varying thickness. Another feature is that the stem hanging from the upper part does not connect with the rim's lower ring, which from other images I have seen would appear to be the preferred way. However ... in the Grover book, they show several items where there is some unevenness in the rings and also where the cameo work has a "solid" look to it, and some are marked such as Thomas Webb & Sons. So those features on your vase may not necessarily be a reason for it not being from the Stourbridge region.
Perhaps "Lustrousstone" has a good point about the shape of the vase, but as yet I have not made shape comparisons to the many hundreds of images in the Glover book, so I won't commit myself to a comment on that right now.
