4 inches high with paper label saying 'Royal Brierley Art Glass' smooth matt finish,looks like fused enamel on the surface,pock-marked with 'burst' bubbles,is there a term for this treatment?

Looks like a similar effect to their more usual Studio stuff, perhaps same technique but using different materials.

I saw a bit of Brierley Studio the other day, a plain coloured posy vase with simple cut decoration. Sadly no photos.

Yet another name for it (but in ceramics) could be "Fat Lava". I'm sure it must be a silimar sort of enamel.
It looks as if they've used the general Harris design, but managed to incorporate this sort of finish.

I'm rather impressed with it. :)

I thought that to qualify for 'fat/thick lava', there needed to be some heavy or thick textural surface lava/dripping/pumice, similar to the ceramics of that name :) :)

In regards to West German pottery (fat-lava) I heard somewhere that the description related to heavy glazes and the term fat-lava was a bad translation from the German,if I heard correctly ::) ::) ;D

It is. I think the word "gros", meaning large, got mistranslated into "fat".
However, this looks like "thin" lava, if you like  ;D - I was referring to the actual surface texture of the enamel, not its thickness.
