Quite tall at 8 1/4" - any ideas of a maker please?  I'm having problems resizing my pictures at the moment so no top view or base - apologies.  The top is pulled in to make 4 crimps - I'll try and get more pics on.  It is uranium glass on the whole of the outside with the cranberry pink at the top only, and has then been restruck for the opalescence.  The rigaree is clear uranium glass.

I've been trying to sort out more pics but struggling at the moment, so no base pic.
The foot is not quite round, very slightly misshapen.  There are tool marks on the foot and lots of wreathing in the glass.  There is no pontil mark or if there was a pontil rod removed it has been firepolished so smoothly as to be invisible.  The centre of the foot on the base is slightly pushed up so it doesn't touch the table, otherwise the base is completely smooth.  The foot has been applied to the stem or vice versa and you can see where the glass is thicker down near the foot.
I've checked Gulliver's and done other searches and all I've found it one very similar identified apparently as Stevens and William, but I couldn't find any back up for that.

It's beautiful and I'm very green. Webb's lemonescent seems like a possible option too

Thanks  :) and oops my last post had a typo - should have read Stevens and Williams with an 's'. I will check out Walsh, I didn't think of that so thank you.

 ;D ;D ;D - not a great day today- very little sleep last night, two weeks of youngest already home on school hols (I'm in for  fraught stressful two months now) and then irfanview wont work on my new laptop and I don't know how to fix it  :'(

Sorry to hear about your stress {{}}

Try uninstalling and download it again. It should work. I assume you're on Windows 7

yes I was wondering about doing that.
I'll try again now.  Thanks
No worries on the stress levels  :) - Just that thinking of entertainment 16 hours a day every day is painful when he wont ever watch television (that lovely 'natural' babysitter  ;D )

hi, yes I do think they are very similar.  Mine is tall so the glass is stretched so the concentration of colour and where it changes is not so defined perhaps.  But yes, strong possibility that they are the same maker :)
I'm just testing resizing using a different program having uninstalled irfanview - so adding another pic to see if it will upload.
Excellent, slower to do but I might try using new program  :)  trying to put a base pic on now as the join of the foot to the stem has been done with opalescent glass or it has gone opalescent where it was reheated?. looks neat though, beautifully done.
