Get your UV light on it. Looks like it might be Primrose, which both Walsh and Webb made

For some reason, the yellow over white doesn't have that green hint, but it's actually the same shade of yellow as Walsh Pompeian and this.   I have four pieces of Primrose but haven't photographed any of them yet.

Thanks Christine,would like to see those pictures when you get round to it,do any of them have a folded rim? the colour is similar to the pieces in Skelchers' Vaseline Glassware,page 114

They are all ground rims covered by metal rims or lids and with pontil marks:

Have just seen the advert for the 'Pottery Gazette' in 20th Century British Glass with pictures of Walsh primrose,page 125,some of the bowls seem to have folded rims like mine but it's a small picture,there's so much in that book it's easy to miss stuff ::) ;D ;D

Just for you Keith. The spill vase/lidless sugar shaker appears in Reynolds p45 and I also have the large bowl in a box somewhere. The plain Walsh? preserve jar has a very large pontil mark like the spill vase and also probably had a metal rim and a different lid, as the upright side under the lid is roughened. The apple has a smaller pontil mark and a decor more likely to be Webb. Mind you Stephens and Williams also made primrose.

Shame we haven't got the first sheet of Walsh Primrose.
