'Twerp reporting in........... ;) :thup:

Well, well, well, Nazeing, Gray-Stan.....Gray-Stan, Nazeing......ya got me!!!  :o :huh:

Oh alright, you twisted my arm, it's regarded as Nazeing and from the Elwell period, identified through the Elwell find.

Most certainly not Gray-Stan !! Wrong colour, wrong thickness of glass for that range of their wares, etc., etc.

 :kissy: thank you Nigel.  Well, I hadn't got to that conclusion totally, but what I did think was, the colour wasn't quite right for Gray Stan, there wasn't the correct whorls or swirls or something about the way the colour was laid on or something wasn't quite right.... I couldn't quite put my finger on it... and then the casing was too thick on the base and the pontil mark wasn't just quite right -  so then I went onto your site and looked at the Nazeing exhibition photographs and there in the cabinet (the one nearest in the photo) , middle shelf is a green bowl that looks remarkably similar in shape and size.  

I hope this link works but it needs to enlarge on the screen to see the bowl more clearly -

And I was just about to post and came here and you'd already seen it  :hiclp:
So... I am learning :rah: and I was right with my first instinct.
Thanks so much  :)

Hiya,

Thank you for the link, but I have to shatter your hawk-eyed observation - that ash-tray isn't the same as yours  :o

For reasons explained elsewhere on the board no pieces like yours were in he exhibition, since there was doubt about their origins. Therefore no items that we now associate with the Elwell find were shown. The shape of the May Green ash-tray shown in the exhibition is different, as is the way the colour is laid in, and it can be traced directly to Nazeing production of the pre-war era.

Simple answer? No :huh:

Certainly not with any accuracy, I'm afraid - although a guestimate based on indications would be late 40's through 50's.

thank you Nigel  :clap: certainly the base wear on mine looks commensurate with a pretty good age.
