I did post it a while ago and I think Christine suggested it may have been R. Brierley,it's one of three pieces with the same decor,the vase sprang to mind while reading Pauls post because it's on the shelf by the computer (I don't have The Big Book of v.g but do have his 'Vaseline Glassware')

thanks Keith - interesting pieces.   Difficult to compare accurately with just a picture on the screen, but there may well be subtle differences in shape when compared with the amber example, and there is, of course, an absence of the ice/crackle effect.   Great shame that at least one of them doesn't 'glow'.   I assume there is nothing similar shown in Charles Hajdamach's volume on C20 glass (one essetial book I still don't have)    I won't comment futher, since Lustrousstone is far more knowledgable than me regarding this sort of thing.   thanks for showing them. :)

Hello,

I have to make an admission ...... I do not have any of Barrie Skelcher's books, and therefore do not have access to the picture of the vase on page 110 and its attribution. Therefore, I have to ask does he give any reference for his assertion that the vase is S&W/RB, since it would be good to know?

I have had the flecked pieces down to be proved through research in the archives for some time, as my suspicion has been that they are indeed R&W/RB, so Skelcher's reference would be very useful.

Shape illustrated in their pattern books as D107, according to Skelcher

Christine,

Many thanks for your help :) :)

Shame, I can't/don't wish to comment on the listing you've linked to, since it's ongoing!

I don't mind commenting on the piece on eBay  :24: absolute dung. Rather have some Liuli at that price.

Update, board nanny, how does dung improve on c-rap :huh:

The price is rather  :o I hadn't noticed that, but please do comment, particularly on the decor, when it's finished. I have seen a mug with this effect (in an antique shop where it has been forever and now is no longer after I thought I might buy it)  and it occurred to me after seeing something at the National that it was Royal Brierley. The listing was only something I saw on a random browse.

I wonder if these are from the same vein http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,21920.0.html (I must ad my mug to that thread).

The mug is very similar to the small vase/beaker I have(with polished pontil scar).In regards to the S&W 'Abbey' piece I recently saw something in the same decor that had a sticker for Cowdy,Gloucestershire on the base :huh:
