Peter, there is a Guild of Glass Engravers who might be able to help find your person if she's a professional rather than an amateur. http://www.gge.org.uk/ - the contact details are on there too.

One of the first posts i made on this board was about Orrefors whisky glasses that it transpires were blanks that were subsequently engraved by persons unknown.  The link to that thread is below, it might be marginally helpful.  Lovely work on yours, whoever did it. Regards, Iain

Hi Iain,
             Thanks for the link , it was all very interresting , I have had a reply from Leslie Pyke and unfortunately the name on the plate is not known to her , so it looks like we have an Orrefors blank engraved by an amateur engraver,I wish I could create something like that !!.

Many thanks for all the replies and ideas ,

cheers,
                Peter.

grey label is for "half/semi" crystal.
All cut pieces from Orrefors are full lead cystal =red sticker.

HI ,
      Thanks for that, I think that now nails everything down as far as we are likely to get , Orrefors semi crystal plate engraved by an unknown hand .

Many thanks to all that have hepled .

Cheers ,
               Peter.
