Thank you, all! Sorry for not coming back earlier - still working abroad and having an 8 to 8.30 day
at the moment (no - the second one´s p.m.).  ;)
I searched the one on ebay, Bradburry, and I seem to remember we had something similar on this
board already - a greenish vase with bubble inclusions and this matt base finish. Since I can´t
find the thread, here´s something similar on ebay
Personally I´ve got no idea who made them, but although I can´t exclude it, I´m rather sure they´re
not german. The base finish doesn´t look familiar to any pieces I´ve seen...  :)

Lovely items there Dirk i did spot a piece listed in the monart/vasart scottish glass section on a very well know internet auction site yesterday evening that looked remarkably similar to this type of glass ware i was going to bid but it went too £41 i think and it was a small turned rim bowl but very similar i dont think it was scottish more similar to graal glass did you see it???

Gralglas, one a is a German company, Graal Glass is a decoration technique.

Do you have a link to the auction please.

Certainly not Scottish but nicely made piece, I wonder if bidders know what it is. Would that qualify as schaumglas? I would have thought not but not seen much variation in that style.
