I see what you are saying but what about those that have turned up  signed to the base Christopher Dresser for liberty ? it was either Harry Lyons or Chris Morley both respected Dresser authors that had one and there are some in museums , i would like to know how long the Hebron ones have been made , i have had mine about 20/ 25 years it has a kick base and rough pontil .  Pity no base picture on the hebron one .

The Hebron one looks more like swirls on the glass than in it

they seem to have been around for a while
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hebron_glass

and if you use google image for hebron glass you might get a shock - there is a ton of it.

I was not convinced of the CD attribution because I have seen the CD collection in the Budapest museum. Those pieces are all much larger, well finished and properly signed with a full cartouche for Cooper and the CD sig.

In any case, both the items at issue have now been ID'd as Hebron glass.  Or azaz-al-khalili, if you like.

I've just stubbled on this topic and read it through.

When John was suggesting Dresser and giving a prize (money????) for getting the right answer I was wondering Sowerby, by Dresser. Smaller, lighter and less consistant than even Clutha by James Cowper & Sons.

However, I'm pleased that you have your ID Ivo  :)

Nigel have you had a good look at the second of Ivo,s it looks nothing like the first compare it to the signed one Harry Lyons had and a few in Chris M S , book can you not see  the similarity and thats just a picture also why do people believe all dressers glass has bubbles and were massive!!! i never said Ivos was definately Dresser but a suggestion of the pissibolity . isnt that what the forum is about ?
 ;D       ps i never offered a prize i said i would buy it for a couple of Rupees then i would have a pair
  . :P
