It looks like a Stuart fruit bowl in the Stratford pattern

Patience please!!! Not everybody visits every day.  Some answers take years to find. Have you researched my suggestion?

I'm afraid that I don't agree with Christine, since the concentric rings have an angular appearance and not the curved bulges that are recognisable as Stuart's Stratford pattern. But maybe I'm looking at it wrong..........

On the other hand, on second look, I don't think the amber is right for Stuart's either :huh:

thanks for the reply Nigel,the easiest part is purchasing the glass but trying too identify it is a different story,especially when you are trying to list it on ebay,thanks Iain.

I agree with Nigel , the Stratford range only has the rings round the lower part .

I only said it looked like, not that it was.
