Keith Yes, to confirm Christine's opinion.   That eclectic rib pattern was a Walsh standard, found in mother of pearl as here and in other finishes.   Probably Edwardian we just don't know when they stopped making mother of pearl, although it was certainly not in regular production by the mid-20s.

... which brings up the question of whether you can say a glassworks ever stopped making anything.   I suspect most old patterns and ranges could be made to order a very long time after regular production had ceased.
