Peter et al — I found the mark on the base of that Repeal Goblet most interesting.   From memory it looks to me the same font and layout of lettering as the mark on my 1938 S&W/RB Raybould tazza, see here.

As you will see, I promised photographs just over six years ago, so perhaps I better take some, once I've found it!  :spls:

Note that Roger Dodsworth of Broadfield House Glass Museum has seen my tazza.   The mark was new to him — he was unable to add any information.

Peter et al — Here's the mark on my Raybould tazza.   Apologies for the poor quality of the photo — and this is the best of a grim bunch!   However there is enough there for you to see the similarity of the lettering with that on the Repeal Glass mark.

I like to see two or three separate and independent items of evidence for an attribution.   In my opinion this match of the lettering font of the two marks is just such extra evidence.

BTW Thanks for clearing up a mystery of over six years from the previous GMB — see here!   I wasn't so far off then, was I?  :angel:
