I bought this vase off Ebay thinking it would be easy to track down a maker. After all there should be something about Bawley that makes it simple. :pb:
The etched boat is a Bawley - a type of oyster boat that was used to get oysters out of Bawley Bay, a part of the Thames Estuary near Gravesend. No cheese in that tunnel.
So look again - what about LK - who might he/she be. Maker, engraver
Hoping one of you can help. Just looking at the vase today I realised it has similar colours to some Caithness vases I have seen so I began to wonder.
