I think what I was thinking was.. perhaps it was accepted in the glass world at that time that if it wasn't carved then it wasn't consider 'real'cameo.  Perhaps that is why it was called 'pseudo cameo'? It's still cameo, it's just that the method of achieving the effect was not the 'pure' process of it being hand carved.

I was only quoting Mr. Hajdamach.........who says of this Cameo Fleur........... "this is the range which is often wrongly called 'Pseudo-Cameo'.
I didn't write the book ;) ;)

I had a look and couldn't see there was an explanation as to why it was 'wrongly called 'pseudo cameo''.  Was it wrongly called that because there was another range/technique that really was called or referred to as 'pseudo cameo' and this range of Cameo Fleur was incorrectly referred to as it.  Or was it wrongly referred to as 'pseudo cameo' because it really is cameo and therefore not 'pseudo'.

Think it's just one of those words that got used without thinking,early (Woodall cameo etc..) was carved by hand but they also used hydrofluric acid 'cut-back' which was used in fleur cameo so I'm rambling and can't remember what I'm talking about,time I was in bed ::) ;D ;D The time above says 12:43 but it is 1:43,I'm really tired and now confused ;D

Cazza, does yours have a "Webb" mark as part of the design? If not, it could just as easily be Richardson.

As for "values" of these, 15 years ago, they could be bought at UK fairs for around 200-300, but for some reason they gained in interest and 600 was sometimes asked. I saw one at that high price and as soon as I was seen looking at it, the dealer immediately offered it to me for 300. I did not buy it.

I do, however, have an example marked "Webb" which is not so tall, has a wide rim and has what I think is Tulip decoration.

By coincidence I remembered to photograph this one today in a local antiques centre, the snaps are not the best as the vase is in a cabinet and the lighting is not good.
