Angela That's lovely.   ... and useful, as the lid may be the essential element in identifying it from a trade catalogue.   It's a spectacular piece.   It is such fine workmanship that it has to be a well known mouldmaker and manufacturer.   I am now even more convinced that it's not British.

Simba:
Yes Bernard I think you are right, the seller is sure it was bought in France in the 1940's or 50's. The detail in the fruit on the lid is perfect!!

Anne:
Angela, that is absolutely gorgeous, what a great find, congrats! :)

Simba:
Thanks Anne I am very pleased with it !! I have asked another friend who collects glass and he has suggested this piece may be by Sars or possibly Choisy le Roi ?

Mosquito:
Finally ID'd as Sowerby Enid, shown in 1936 catalogue. Thanks to Mike for making the catalogues available: http://www.victorianpressedglass.com/pdf/sowerby/sowerby_1936.pdf (p.7 as a lidded pot).
