Well one person has it right! Well done to Robert (bOBA) - it is in fact Royal Brierley! Here is the mark on the base to prove it...

Thx Anne, it was a wild guess .......... I have just noticed a thread on Royal Brierley studio stuff in the British Glass dept. of GMB that looks contemporary with this atomiser.....

I wish my wild guesses were as good as yours. :) 

I must say that I don't really like this, I only picked it up because it was marked and therefore a useful reference. Although I may like it better with a new top part. ;)

this seemed a suitable place for this R/Brierley atomiser, but it can be moved if inappropriate.               Vases I've seen quite commonly, in a variety of colours, but this is the first atomiser, apart from Anne's.
I used to collect these things, but then I had so many and didn't know how to show them, so gave up buying them  -  I expect one day they'll all go to the charity shop  -  it's the older deco style I prefer.
Suppose I could always put some Old Spice in this one and give it a go ;D ;)

this one does have the 'Studio' backstamp.

There are a few of these around Paul, so they aren't that unusual  :-[  I've seen a number but they aren't my thing.
But I wonder if they were more often made in the darker colours as I don't recall seeing any in pinks or reds.

think I'd agree that this dark colourway is possibly the most common in their Studio range - for a while I did collect these RB pieces, and mostly I seem to remember that it was vases of some form that I used to find.           I think Keith proabably has all of the colours, but the range of shapes etc. is amazing.
I got into the atomiser thing after finding a few from the 1920 period - some nice cut ones - but I think the interest has waned somewhat and they've languished in the shed without any tlc for some time now.     But they're small and make a good theme for someone I'm sure.

Oh, so my atomizer is commonplace is it..........  you've ruined my day ;) ;)
