Liz, you need to have much larger photos to give detail. 

Almost all glass identification goes better if there is a clear shot of the base.  The best way to take the base photo is form a shallow angle to the side.  This removes much of the distraction from refraction by the glass itself and if there is a signature it shows up as dark against the lighter reflection of the smoother glass.  For vases and bowls it may be useful to get a closeup of the upper rim - again a little to the side to remove the effects od refraction and reflection in the object itself.

As for sizing and posting I urge you to read the useful guide contained in the GMB on how to best do that.  Hope this helps.

Thanks Ross,

I will try another picture which shows the signature - I have spent most of the
day trying to learn how to resize the photo. I will try to take new pictures tomorrow but this is another
one taken with the phone. The base has a slight chip on the pedestal underneath - but this is the signature
which is a letter B in a square.

That is a great attachment, the size is excellent - pity about the quality.  Nevertheless that will probably be sufficient for someone to recognise(Just not me I am afraid).  Just looking at the makers mark - is the B contained in a square or is it contained within two L shaped sections - it seems the latter from the fuzzy photo.  If so that suggests LBL or BLL or LLB may represent this initials of a company or person.

Thanks for your advice Ross -

The B is in 2 L shapes (not quite touching) making up a square which I why I thought it
 was Lucienne Bloch for Leerdam -
but the ducks she made (although they look really similar) all seem to be frosted glass whereas this
glass is clear - not frosted - and a bit yellowish.

  Hi,
      I found the mark on your duck on this site,

             https://www.glasmarken-lexikon.de/index.php.en

       However, you need to be a Paid up Member to see any Info.
    I wonder if there are any Paid up Members here who would look this up for you? I'm afraid I'm a bit strapped for cash at the moment to join!!!

      Hope you find out SOON!!!

      Warmest Wishes,

      John

  p.s Just a thought, but have you tried Ivo's Book?? Its an Excellent source, I can Highly Recommend it, sadly I lost my copy.

Thanks for your link John,

I did find this sign on the web - it looked exactly the same and I think
it must be Lucienne Bloch for Leerdam - I saw the same signature on this
link for glass marks: http://www.great-glass.co.uk/glass%20notes/marki-l.htm

Bloch did a similar duck on this link: http://www.luciennebloch.com/glass.htm

But the ducks she made are frosted glass whereas my figure is clear - not frosted.

Thank you for the information John-

I hope I get a chance to hear from Ivo too.
It would be really interesting to know more about it from somone with
knowledge on Leerdam, in particular.

Best Regards

Liz
