Hi,thanks for the pointers,i'm feeling quite stupid atm
Anyhoo i will give it a try when all is quiet here,trying to work it out with teens & younger ones tearing around is doing my head in
I have just flicked through ebay & came across some that have a similar(slightly)edging,well the small balls sortta effect/pattern.
They are listed as Sowerby with a date line of 1930's,though i am not saying Sowerby could the time frame be right.
I will try again asap,then you maybe able to answer the questions
