Hi Chris when you said well done but who made it i thought you meant the actual glass blower not the firm . So it was Isle of Man Glass set up by Michael Harris .

Interesting the Island Glass name is precisely what he used on Guernsey as well.

It was St Johns Crystal at first , when that started to go under Michael Harris rescued it !!!! lt then became Isle of man glass !!! or Island Glass under Michael and had connections with all the other Island firms they made lots of minimals and maximals and while Ray was there he made sample Azurine Goblets with the gold or silver leaf like your vase Chris . I will ask Ray for more info at the weekend .

I can tell they were the same company by the little animals I have....now have a few extra as well.....and of coure, the Isle of Wight 'Genuine' ones.

I love them all, Isle of wight,  Island glass (IOM), and St John's Crystal.....don't mind which label as long as I like the creature.

Guernsey Glass don't appear to have any animals,  but do make very pretty 'petal rimmed' glass vases.
That is a nice vase though Chris,  I like it very much.

Thanks for this thread Chris, I now have what I know to be an Isle of Man vase - from a local Op-shop here in Melbourne. Suburb where the shop is is St Kilda - named after another remote British Island.

 8) Ross, tempted to peel off the label to see if there is a mark on the blob of glass on the base  ;D

Just received an eMail from Graham Hudson from Whitefriars.com about a pink bark vase and jug very much in the Whitefriars style with the same Island Glass label in a members {the lovely Pinky} gallery.

Maybe time to remove the label on mine the blob of glass on the pontil mark of those two reveal a Celtic knot?
