Are you in the UK? It looks like it might be a piece by John Airlie; made by him and engraved by someone else. Any marks?

Is the colour in the photo accurate? It looks a bit pale to be Kirkhill glass, but that may just be down to the photography. And I can't see any engraving. If it is diamond point, it could either be by John, or, more likely, by Bruce Walker.

If the colour is darker, then there is a good chance it is Kirkhill. Can you give me a shot of the engraving?

brucewalker13(AT)aol.com change (AT) to @ to make email address work

If you send the photo to Bruce (say I told you to do so), he may be able to say if he was responsible for it. It's nice!
