It's not Nailsea (very little glass is). The technique used is called peloton. It could be be Bohemian and Harrach. Wilhelm Kralik patented the technique when he was working for the company, but that doesn't mean other companies didn't use it,3680.0.html,10649.0.html

There are more threads; search for peloton on the board.
